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.
