Editorial review from Citysearch 1/4/2014

This is amazing. The ""reivews"" from Frank, Dave and JW all were written within 24 hours, and over a holiday weekend, to boot, AND they were written when most people dont come out to do their taxes (late November??). In other words, all these positive reviews were written by Joe and friends and are totally BOGUS, just like joe himself. \r \r dont let this conman take your money. he cheated on all his wives. he cheated on his kids. check out Harris County District Clerk website, for cases 201237783- 7, 201338735- 7, 201042267- 7, 200808162- 7, 199355465- 7 and more. He owes Mary Phan (my friend's boss) over a quarter million dollars for fraud!!!\r \r \r more

Hello, my name is Frank. I the first time I went to go to 1040+ Quality Tax service and met with joe I had five years of taxes to do. I was very scared. Joe told me not to worry. Got all my information from the IRS and filed the tax returns for me. I actually receive a refund for two of the years. I have going to see Joe every year since then. I refer all my friends to him. I didn't really like doing tax returns over the tv when he was in the Philippines, but I trust Joe and know he did a good job. i recommend this company to anyone who needs tax help. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/24/2013

I have been using Becker's Accounting & Tax, Becker's Tax Service, and now 1040+ Quality Tax Preparation since 1993. I was one of Joe's First customers. He has always done a great job for me and given me excellent advise. I can't believe some of the blatant unfounded lies that have been posted about this man. He is probably the most knowledgeable tax man in Houston. I recommend him to everyone and read through the lies that have been posted. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/24/2013

My Husband and I have been using Joseph Becker and his companies the past 7 years. He has always been very kind and courteous. He advises us in both our business and personal affairs. His company does our accounting on quick books and take care of our payroll. We had three years audited and based on Mr. Becker's advise and instructions we had no change audits in all three years. I am shocked at what some of the people have posted about Joseph Becker and Becker's Tax Service. These people must have never met or used Becker's Tax Service. We will continue using Becker's Tax Service and highly recommend him to anyone how has a small business or needs a great tax adviser. . more

I think Joe becker and 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 more

RUN................... 3/31/2013

I gave it a one star because I could not find a lower rating. The negative allegations contained in the reviews for Joseph Charles Becker, d/b/a Beckers Tax Service have merit. My ex-wife and I used Beckers when we had a business and we ended up with a letter from the IRS claiming that the return was defective. Beckers did nothing to correct it, but was the first to charge about $500.00 for his services.\r \r At this time Joseph Charles Becker does not possess a license to be an accountant or an insurance agent license to sell insurance. Both of these searches are public records. Additionally, Joe Becker is a convicted sex offender required to register for life. He apparently raped a 26 year old and was convicted in 1996. From 2008 to 2011, he had numerous civil lawsuits filed against him in Harris County, Texas. He evades service and sex offender registration by travelling to his resort in the Phillipines. Not all of his mortgage broker connections know of his character, but will in more

Everything that is alleged here can be easily verified with a public search of the Harris County District Clerk's office.\r \r The latest was a divorce filed by his wife on June 29, 2012, which was finalized on March 13, 2013. Word of advice, take your business elsewhere. This man and his companies are nothing but trouble. more

DOJ Investigating Becker 2/27/2012

I have used Joe since he started in that little hole in the wall on W. Little York. He always did good work for us for the most part but I am not sure what happened to him over the last couple of years. Now he does your taxes over a TV from the Philippines. I was recently audited over 2008 and 2009 and they made me pay tens of thousands to cover mistakes made by Becker. When I asked the IRS about all of this they said they are investigating all Becker tax returns from '08 and '09 and that he is currently under investigation by the DOJ Tax Division. I am scared to death that he did my 2010 taxes and that they are going to audit those too, then we will have nothing left at all, we already had to empty our savings and go way into debt over his mistakes. more

Ms Khar 1/6/2012

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. more

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.

Steer clear of this outfit! 4/26/2011

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.\r \r 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. more

Terrible Tax Service 1/17/2010

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. Cons: Incompetent Employees, Long Waits, IRS Problems more

I would never go back. 2/3/2009

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. \r \r 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! Cons: high fees, unreliable more
