About Ryan Stone, EA
Ryan Stone has been an Enrolled Agent (EA) for the past three years, and has worked in the accounting industry for five. Originally working in the banking industry, Ryan discovered the incredible demand for accountants within the small business arena. With this in mind, Ryan went back to school and completed his master’s degree in accountancy at University of Phoenix while interning at a local CPA office.
Since 2009, Ryan has focused his attention on small business and individual tax clients in the Chandler area. He has worked on numerous occasions with clients who have had tax problems, levies, garnishments, and other unpleasant IRS situations. Having success with this in 2011, Ryan decided to go out on his own and begin his own practice. He has had tremendous success with his client base in Chandler, minimizing taxation and helping them prepare for future tax years.
Ryan’s background in banking has helped him to understand just how challenging the small business arena can be, which is why he has chosen to merge with Dawn in order to provide top level service to clients of all sizes.
Ryan currently resides in Ahwatukee with his wife, 6-year-old daughter, and infant son. Ryan and his wife were both raised in the Ahwatukee area and enjoy working with the community. Talk to Ryan
