I couldn't imagine having my taxes done by anyone else! I stumbled across his office location years ago because they next door to the Neighborhood my girlfriend and I lived in. Here it is more than 10 years later, and just about all of my coworkers fly in from around the country to have their personal accounting and taxes done here.
I have been using Joe Becker for about 13 years. I know him to be an honest, good man who is a friend to everyone, perhaps to his detriment. He has prepared my taxes every year and I have never been audited, nor have I had a problem with anyone with regard to my taxes. He does a thorough job and always asks for a meeting face to face before he finalizes any tax return.
My husband and I have used Joseph C Becker for the last 7 Years. Even when he was doing taxes online from the Philippines we always got excellent service and great advise. Whenever I had a question about my personal and business taxes he would take the time to talk with me and discuss the various options I had. He advised us the best business business structure for us and what type of records we needed to keep. His staff does our Quick Books and payroll. I highly recommend Joseph and his company to anyone who wants someone who is knowledgeable in the tax law and small business savy. Someone who is more than just a tax preparer and takes an interest our best interest.
Beckers Tax Service is the only tax professional we have used since filing on our own for many years. When we came into some real estate and a trust our situation became more complicated so we had to go to see someone who could advise us accordingly. Great service and Joe was extremely helpful.
Beware. I'm sorry to say we referred many people here after he got us so much more money than I had in prior years. I was sure it was because of my new hubby's deductions since he had lots of expenses that I hadn't been taking as deductions. Well, several years later and we were being audited. Becker's would always say we were fine, not to worry. I asked what was happening, and he would say they were providing info to IRS to clear it up. Months and months passed so I finally called the IRS & they hadn't heard a thing from anyone. In the end, I hired someone else to represent me and found that a lot of the deductions were not something we could take. Lordy, that was bad enough because I had to everything - receipts, paperwork, etc...& I was audited for 3 more years thanks to that. I changed services and after the other 2 audits of Beckers work. I know audits happen, but I found it strange that EVERYONE we had referred, were also audited for the same years!
Joe Becker has a bad habit of posting fake reviews. Take this as a warning about how he'll "take care" of you!
Do you really think 5 or 6 customers came in to his office to write fantastic 5-star reviews ALL in December when there is almost no tax filing needed? How many people visit the tax preparer between Christmas and New Years? Like, None, Joe, you moron.
Do you think everyone misspells words in their review?---only Joe does.
Joe needs to go back to the kitchen and stay there.
I think Becker's Tax Service is great. I guess it's true you can post anything you want on the internet. I have been going to Becker's Tax Service for over 15 years. They do my personal, business, bookkeeping, payroll, and financial Consulting. My family and friends also go to Becker's Tax Service. When i have a problem Joe becker has always been there to help me. They charge me a fair price for supierior service. I am happy i have a place to go that i know is honest, fair, does great work and have my best interest first when ever they work for me.
I have been using Becker's Tax Service since I was in High School. My parents, brothers, sisters, and family use Becker's Tax Service too. This company has always been there seven days a week to help us with our taxes, finances, and small business. Some of us, like everyone in these times of recession, have been audited. As long as we could support the things we claimed on our tax return, there was no problem. I was examined for 2008,2009,2010 for my small business and I had a no change audit for all those years. My father had to pay a little back in, but not as much as the IRS first said and it was because he did not keep really good records. All i can say to the people who have posted less then kind reviews, is you must be kidding. This company is the best. Thank you Joe and Becker's Tax for always taking care of me.
To anyone who has written a nice review, thank you. To those of you who have written a not so nice review, I am sorry. If we made a mistake or were not able to provide you exemplary service, we let you down. I can give you all kinds of reasons why or what happened, but the bottom line is you felt so bad about me or us that you posted something here.
For those of you for some unkown reason hate me or our company, i am not sure why. No one here is a convicted felon, criminal, or wrong doer. We are here to help you. We are not bad people. We are Experienced bookkeepers and tax preparers. The majority of the folks who get audited we help them prepare their paper work and as long as they have the supporting documentation we win.
I have been doing taxes since the mid 1980s and i plan to continue to do so. Anyone who has a question or questions about my ability or our companies ability, please come by and see us. At Becker's Tax Service, service comes first..
If anyone needs help with their taxes, bookkeeping, payroll, or other financial consulting, please call me at 281-397-7777.
If anyone has a complaint about our work or service, please call me at the same number.

I used Beckers to handle my small business accounting needs for 3 years and found that the IRS and Texas State Comptroller was always after me for something that was supposed to have been submitted by Beckers. The final straw when IRS wanted a remittance for a 2008 tas year discrepency. I passed this on to Beckers for verification, where is sat for a couple of months until the IRS threatened to place a lien on my property. The work that I finally pressed them to do by sitting on someones desk until I had something was incorrect. I finally resolved the problem myself by finding Becker's mistake, and the IRS claim was valid.
I had to pay my new accountant ot go back and fix other mistakes in Becker's book keeping because they refused (by ignoring my reque3sts) to cooperate in correcting the errors or even to return all my financial files and documents.

Normally my taxes are pretty simple and clear cut, but a couple of years ago I had a foreign tax credit left over from the previous year that I did not know how to handle. I went to Beckers, waited in a long line and went through the process with a tax specialist. After finishing she asked me if I just wanted her to go ahead and file my return. I was shocked and told her no, that I hadn't even looked over it and neither had she. So she printed it out, I told her I would take it home and look it over and call her back and then she could file the return. When I looked it over, I realized that that not only was the foreign tax credit handled incorrectly but that also the tax deductible IRA that I had contibuted to and we had discussed was not on my return. I went back to Becker and had to wait in the long lines again. After making a big scene in the waiting area over my botched return I was able to speak with Mr. Becker. After looking at my return he brought someone else out to handle it and inform me that my return had erroneously already been efiled and that we would have to do a revised return. The errors on my return amounted to a reduction of refund from the IRS of around $7000. Had I not had previous experience doing my own return I probably would not have caught the mistakes and we would have been out $7000. Doing a revised return also delayed our refund considerably. Needless to say they refunded the fees that we paid to them.Then a year later we received a notice from the IRS that they had found another mistake on the return that I missed. Two numbers had been transposed and we owed about $250. The most concerning thing to me was that I called Beckers several weeks after we had done the revised return and asked for the person who had initially done our return and she was still working there. She was obviously not qualified to do the job and they kept her employed.

This is the third year that I have gone to Becker's Tax Service and it will be my final. I am regretful that I even went to them again this year. The first year this company filed my taxes, they messed up on my dependent's SSN and I had to call them several times to get fixed. I also had to keep calling to try to get a copy of the corrected return. The second time I went to them to file my taxes, I had to once again call repeatedly to get a copy of my return. They were supposed to mail it out after I received my direct deposit. I received the mail copy only after weeks of calling. This year, Joe Becker is trying to save on paper, so he promised to email me a copy of my return once the return was deposited into my account. Surprise, surprise, no email with a copy of my return has arrived yet even though I already received the funds in my account. No, Joe never asked me if I would like a copy, he simply stated that it will be emailed because he spent over $280,000 last year on paper. ""So you pay my enormous fees and print it out yourself because I'm going to save money on paper,"" is what Joe is simply saying to me.
I would never go back. I did my own taxes on Turbo Tax prior to going to Becker's and it was the EXACT same amount that Joe came up with, minus the $380 in fees that Joe charged. Not only do I not trust them to do what they say and get my own copy of my own return in a timely manner, but I could have saved the enormous fee of $380 to file a simple return. I guess I deserved to be swindled out of $380 because I went back. Never again!
