"I get a great sense of satisfaction when I'm able to help someone who is completely overwhelmed with their tax situation," stated Jeff when asked what he enjoys about Tax Preparation. Jeff Shaffer has been preparing taxes in the Paxton office since 1998 and before that was a paid preparer for many years for other firms. He was influenced by a dynamic accounting professor and became interested in taxes in college. Now, as an Enrolled Agent Jeff can prepare returns and represent clients before the IRS in audit and appeal cases.


Jeff enjoys owning his own business and strives to create an environment where his team can succeed and prosper. He loves the busy season because his wife, Darlos Shaffer, lends a hand as the office receptionist. When not working side by side, they enjoy spending time at their farmstead in Lincoln, IL and entertain friends and family with cookouts and parties. Jeff previously served as the church treasurer and is currently on the PBL Education Foundation Board and Drainage District Commissioner in Logan County, IL. 

"I appreciate the family atmosphere and getting to know the clients over the years", Denise said when asked what she most enjoys about working at Shaffer Tax & Accounting, LTD. Denise brings 27 years of accounting experience and started with the firm in 1998. She has her Associates in Accounting and gained her Enrolled Agent Certification in 2011. Denise and her husband of 29 years enjoy spending time with her two daughters and grandson. She also volunteers as Treasurer of the First United Methodist Church. 

Jill Herscher joined the Shaffer Tax & Accounting team in 2017, and she is thrilled to be a part of an organization that is family and community oriented. Jill focuses on providing clients with payroll and general accounting solutions. She spends her free time with her husband, children, and an ornery chocolate lab.

Fiorillo and Shaffer worked along side each other for 18 years and Shaffer continued to lead the business upon Fiorillos's passing. Fiorillo, Shaffer & Associates, LTD. has been the voice of tax and accounting in Paxton since 1969.
