Stephanie Thomas, CPA
As a certified public accountant, my career focus has been exclusively on state and local tax issues.
Prior to joining Thomas, Thomas & Thomas PC in 1998, I worked in the area of tax compliance in the state taxation departments of several Fortune 500 oil and gas exploration companies.
That experience has afforded me extensive knowledge of state taxing authority policies, rules, and regulations. It also enables me to understand and address the concerns of auditors and staff who are responsible for sales and use tax compliance.
I work with state tax authorities on audit issues, prepare and present tax credit documentation, and consult with clients on tax planning.
A passionate advocate for business, I work with business owners and company personnel to provide the peace of mind that what they are doing is correct and compliant.
I pride myself on providing the knowledge and insight business operators need to efficiently and effectively meet their sales & use tax requirements.

What Others Say about Stephanie
I know that I can always count on Stephanie and Mary to provide professional, accurate, timely and efficient analysis of our company’s tax needs. Their knowledge and understanding of the tax laws and their willingness to go above and beyond are greatly appreciated. Thanks for the great service!!
Undergoing a sales tax audit can be extremely overwhelming and intimidating. The first call with Stephanie Thomas put me completely at ease. Stephanie demonstrated subject matter expertise with a gift for communication. With the help of Stephanie, I had a clear direction of how to approach the audit and received consistent follow up with tasks required from each of us.
Not only do they have an encyclopedic knowledge of sales and use tax law and practice, but they also are able to explain key concepts clearly, thoroughly, and patiently. Mary and Stephanie have taught my husband and I so much that when we hired a new bookkeeping service last year, we paid for the owner of the service to attend their course so that she had a solid base of knowledge for helping us accurately.
