Shaffer, who has 25 years of controller experience, including firsthand knowledge about government and insurance audits, discussed tax accounting for contractors and manufacturers, as well as sales and use tax accounting on repairs, labor and freight and when they’re not taxable in businesses.

She was joined by colleague Hypatia LaCour.

Shaffer is a notary public, approved tax preparer and a certified bookkeeper with the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers. She also is designated as a ProAdvisor for Intuit online, desktop and point-of-sale Quickbook products.

Shaffer lives in Clinton with her husband, Joey, and their two sons.
