Darcy Stone has been one of Alfano & Company’s top staff accountants since late 2019.
While his title involves preparing individual, partnership, corporate, trust, estate, non-profit, and gift-tax returns, Darcy prefers to extend special kindnesses to our clients that go beyond mere tax preparation.
Darcy was once told, “If you’re ever in a difficult situation where you can’t decide what to do or how to handle it, do the kind thing.”
How has Darcy applied this sage advice?
He tells us, “While most of my time is spent on preparation, I enjoy researching unique tax issues and providing feedback for tax planning. This is a very satisfying part of my role because I really enjoy helping our clients plan to maximize their tax benefits under current tax code.”
This is especially noteworthy considering the huge variety of tax scenarios faced by our very niche clientele. Darcy enjoys becoming “familiar with some of these obscure situations” in order to provide the best, and kindest, service to our clients.
Darcy has an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) in accounting and has continued his education with more field specific training in a variety of areas over the years. He’s also handled the financial accounts associated with his volunteer work that has helped him to “be precise and identify and correct areas of concern” with regards to financial situations.
Darcy’s kind nature extends beyond the office, too!
“My wife Shannon and I have always enjoyed volunteering together. We first met volunteering on a disaster relief project in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina. The words ‘there is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving’ have helped shape our life today. We’ve both been greatly enriched by spending our time to help others.”
His kind, volunteer spirit has motivated him to assist in the building of a school in Peru, the rebuilding of homes in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida after hurricanes and teaching in Indonesia & Singapore.
Regarding these experiences, Darcy says, “They have taught me to balance being people-oriented and policy-oriented. That’s helped me in a professional environment.”
As you can likely already tell, Darcy loves exploring new places and new foods in different parts of the world. He often prefers to go “off the tourist path” to learn from and understand many different types of people.
