Our Story

The firm began as a grass roots operation in 1984 providing tax assistance and compliance services as well as accounting and financial services. Its strategic intent is to become a value driven, comprehensive tax, accounting, and financial planning organization dedicated to developing strong relationships and adding unique value to small and medium business owners, families, and individuals.

How We Began

Located in Logan, Utah, the firm grew quickly due to its commitment to the client promulgated by its original founder, David Saunders, CPA. From those humble beginnings, working from a small office in the basement of David’s home, that commitment began and still exists today. It is the driving force behind the primary focus of the firm to answer the needs of the client and to help them become successful.

In January 2000, David merged his practice with Jeffrey Wangsgard’s practice to become Saunders Wangsgard. Over time the firm acquired other small tax practices and has evolved into a team of experienced and enthusiastic professionals who pride themselves on their dedication towards education. One of the primary core values of the firm is to educate the client, to help them learn and grow with their businesses.

A change in partnership was made in October of 2019, when Jeff Wangsgard left to pursue his own practice. Nathan Nydegger became partners with Paul Saunders to form Saunders Nydegger PC. This team of tax specialist wants to be your partner in success. We serve clients in Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Oregon, Colorado, Oklahoma, Florida, and California in preparation of financial statements (reviews, compilations, and analytics), tax returns (individual, partnership, LLC, corporate, non-profit, trusts, estates, etc.), payroll services, and financial and tax planning strategies. The firm also provides most ancillary business and financial service commonly needed to operate a small or medium sized business.

Saunders Nydegger, in an effort to add value to its clients, has securities and insurance licenses that can provide additional financial services that most CPA firms cannot. Among these services are securities investment consulting, mutual finds, annuities, employee benefit planning, and employer retirement planning.
