Individual & Business Tax Preparation

The number of people preparing their own taxes continually increases from year to year; unfortunately, so do the number of errors on tax returns. Tax law continually changes from year to year and to stay current is increasingly difficult. Because of this problem, we at Peterson Shafer Inc believe we can help you save more and give you the peace of mind that your taxes were filed right.

We strive to make our clients feel confident with the quality of service they receive. We are proud to say our clients refer family and friends to the practice. We work hard to make sure our clients are well taken care of and that their returns have been submitted with confidence and accuracy.

Peterson Shafer Inc provides full accounting, payroll, and bookkeeping services. We service a variety of clients from small start-ups to large multi-state partnerships. We currently do full-service accounting for notable franchises, doctor and dentist offices, network-marketing firms, network-marketing distributors, and everything in-between. Our staff maintains general ledgers, prepares quarterly returns, processes small to large payroll accounts, calculates sales commissions, reconciles bank accounts, processes year-end reports, and a variety of other services.  The goal is to keep you in the driver’s seat of your company and to let you do what you do best, run your company.

We hope you take advantage of a free consultation or meeting where we can assess the needs of your company.

Client Testimonials:

Layne Peterson has been a personal friend for many years. I have always found him to diligent, honest and capable of any task he takes on. More recently, we have engaged his professional services. We are very pleased. He has an ability to explain complicated accounting issues in a way that a non-accountant can understand it. He provides excellent advise and helps you understand what should be done to be within accepted accounting practices. He has helped us determine options, expressing both the upsides and the downsides but leaves the decisions to us. I can trust him to keep important matters confidential. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to you for your accounting and tax needs.

CEO, Natural Trends

I’ve been using Peterson & Associates for more than 10 years now. We’re a small business, but I’ve never felt like it when working with Peterson. Whenever I call, they instantly remember how my company is structured, what my issues are, and what our latest tax and financial activities have been. They make me feel like I’m their only client. I’ve turned over more and more responsibilities to them because they have proven to be responsive, reliable, and a joy to work with. Peterson & Associates is truly a partner in my company’s success, and I couldn’t do it it without them.
Suzanne Smith

CEO, Owner BetterBirth, LLC

Layne has been my CPA for the past 13 years. He does my personal taxes as well as all my medical practice accounting and taxes. He also does my payroll. It’s great to have an accountant that you trust, and someone who is accurate and responsive. Layne is very reachable when I need to speak to him about an investment, business expansion or any other needed advice.
