Carter Agency, LLC


We came to Stokes CPA after realizing that our tax needs had outgrown our past tax preparer. During our first meeting, Stephen Stokes spent time clarifying our situation and more importantly, understanding our needs. He advised us on actions we needed to take right away, as well as giving us a list of items to work through. With his guidance, we were able to greatly reduce our tax liability. Because he took the time to understand our situation, I know that we took advantage of every deduction possible! I have been so impressed, I have referred others to him! I would highly recommend Stokes CPA!”

Your quick response and attentiveness to my account are unequaled by any CPA that I have encountered in my 40 years of being in business. I also know that I can trust you and your fees will always be very fair.”

As the new year rolls around, Stephen Stokes’ name is on my mind. He has prepared my taxes for the last 2 years and I wouldn’t consider using anyone else. TurboTax used to be my ‘go to’ but not anymore. The service he provides is accurate, timely, knowledgeable, concise, professional and extremely personal. I trust Stephen to get me the maximum return possible using honorable methods. He’s the best!”

We found ourselves in the middle of tax season without an accountant. After interviewing several CPA firms, we all felt that Stokes and Bales could best meet our needs. We were right! Stephen jumped right in. He was able to bring our books up to date, produce the reports we needed, and present it all to our shareholders on time. Since our transition Stephen has spent a great deal of time learning about the background and the needs of our business and has become a valuable partner in our future planning.”
