Saunders Tax & Accounting

This year marks Nancy Saunders’ 40th year preparing tax returns.

A Washington County native and part of the team at Saunders Tax & Accounting in Hagerstown, Saunders prepared her first tax return in 1973, when taxes were done the old-fashioned way — with a pencil, calculator and the U.S. Postal Service.

Technological efficiencies, IRS designation as an enrolled agent and a reputation based on honesty, integrity and experience have allowed Saunders to increase her average annual number of returns from about 50 in 1973 to 400 currently.

Saunders Tax & Accounting noted the following other staff members reached milestones for years of tax preparation:

Steven Young, 35 years

Steven Bittner, 25 years

Beverly Stitely, managing partner, 20 years

Kathy Fahr, seasonal office manager, 15 years

April Hoover, five years

Kathryn Archuleta, five years

Saunders Tax & Accounting, which has been in business since 1984, has offices at 18710 Crestwood Drive and 17339 Virginia Ave., both in Hagerstown. The main office on Crestwood Drive is open all year, while the office on Virginia Avenue is open from January through April 15.

Hagerstown Police Department

Officer Douglas Hay was selected as the Hagerstown Police Department’s officer of the month for February.

Hay was nominated for his dedication and persistence in investigating a strong-arm robbery that occurred  Feb. 20 in Hagerstown. He contacted the victim, who said several subjects took some items from him and assaulted him during the incident. 

Over the next couple of days, Hay conducted numerous interviews with people who allegedly were involved in the incident. Because of his thorough investigation, he was able to recover some of the victim’s property and file charges against two of the individuals involved.

While the incident might not have attracted much outside attention, Hay conducted a thorough investigation while handling other calls for service on patrol.

Hay has been employed by the City of Hagerstown for 16 years and is assigned to the Uniform Patrol Division’s Alpha Platoon.
