A Brief History
Stanfield, Thomas & Associates, LLC was established in 1988 by Stephen Stanfield and Robert “Bob” Thomas after having operated separate tax preparation businesses for several years in the Bluff City area.
In the late 80′s and early 90′s the firm was primarily dedicated to tax preparation services and operated from a variety of locations in Bristol.
In the late 1990′s, the firm expanded its operations and began offering a full range of services including bookkeeping, federal and state reporting, payroll services, client billing and non-profit financial reviews while continuing to offer tax preparation services for individuals and small businesses, including partnerships, LLC’s, and corporate returns.
STA was one of the first firms in Bristol to offer electronic filing for federal and state tax returns to our client base.
The firm’s expansion has continued with the addition of additional staff, including Crystal McDuffie, EA, Roxanne Mullan, Wrenda Hull, Kathy Sullivan, Judy Stanfield, and Dwayne Green to better serve our clients.
In 2012, Bob Thomas began a well-deserved retirement.
With the passing of Stephen Stanfield, EA in October 2019, Crystal McDuffie, EA became the principal and owner of Stanfield, Thomas, & Associates.
