Comptroller’s Hagerstown Branch Office Moving to More Convenient Location on June 1

Current location to be closed Wednesday, May 31, to facilitate move

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (May 18, 2017) – Comptroller Peter Franchot announced that the Hagerstown branch office will be closed on Wednesday, May 31, to allow the agency to move from its current location in the Professional Arts Building at 1 South Potomac Street to its new location at 1850 Dual Highway, Suite 201, Hagerstown, MD 21740. The office will re-open Thursday, June 1.

In January, the Board of Public Works approved a new 10-year lease agreement to make the move possible. The Comptroller’s Office staff worked to find a location that was accessible, convenient and one that offered ample parking.

“The new Hagerstown office is close to the highway, has strong visibility and will offer more convenient parking for taxpayers,” Comptroller Franchot said in describing his priorities for the new branch. “We provide a broad range of services for area taxpayers so they can avoid long trips to our primary offices in Baltimore and Annapolis.”

The current office will close on May 30 at 4:30 p.m. and the new office will reopen on June 1 at 8:30 a.m. Taxpayers in need of assistance on May 31 may visit branch offices in Cumberland or Frederick. Taxpayers in need of free state tax assistance also can call the taxpayer services line from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1-800-MD TAXES, or 410-260-7980.
