Trust your instincts. I wish we would have. Run forest run!! This guy is a real piece of work. My husband and I gave Mr. Becker our tax documents for both our corporate taxes as well as our personal in February 2015. Several times Mr. Becker would say our corporate taxes were almost done. His memory is horrible and it seems that Mr. Becker does not know his left from right. Forgetful phone meetings and he always seems to sound like he is stoned. After getting a snapshot of our corporate taxes we realized something was not quite right. We had another tax accountant review our corporate taxes and just at a glance he saw obvious mistakes.

At this point we decided we were not going to move forward with Mr. Becker and we pointed out the reasons why. Mr. Becker said he did a really good job for us and I continued by saying we are no longer moving forward with someone who obviously could not do our taxes properly.

After several emails to get our documents back, phone calls, etc., my husband and I decided to take other measures. Today, we had a police officer escort us to Mr. Becker's office. We could hear Mr. Becker on the phone and he refused to answer the knocks on his door from the police officer. We have filed a report, Case#15-42398. After some research, we found out Mr. Becker has several large judgments against him, tax liens and in addition he has a past felony charge against against him for sex with a minor under the age of 14.

I have used Joe Becker for over 12 years and he has always done a great job with my taxes. He works it seems tirelessly and will meet with you early, late, on Saturdays, Sundays, you name it, Joe is there for you when you need your taxes done. I have never had a problem with a return he has done for me, and he is always there when you NEED him.

I recently went to Beckers for preparation of my tax return. A man by the name of Joe Becker was rude, pushy and kept staring at my legs. I walked out of there grossed out by his demeanor. Don't give this pervert any business, he doesn't deserve it.

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.

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 due time. He also refuses to accept any responsibility for his wrongdoings.

To the reviewer that asks why do people lie? Hmmmm....I guess ask your buddy Joe Becker why and be sure to let us know as well.

was really upset and frightened by the fact i was being audited by the IRS. My qualms were put to rest by the Becker's Tax Service team. They explained to me that all i had to do was provide to them the documentaion that supported the expenses i claimed for my business. I am a doctor and having them to guide me along, made my life so easy. I did not even have to talk to the IRS. One of my colleagues was audited and went to see Randall Klein for thier audit. I don't think he knew what he was doing. He didnt even fight the IRS or get him the deductions that he was entilted too. I have brought my friend to Becker's Tax Service. They told both me and my friend, they could reopen my friends case an fight his battle for him too. So I just wanted to say thank you Becker's Tax Service. i will always be your client.

Pros: Friendly, efficent, understand accounting and the tax laws, care about thier clients

Cons: none

i HAVE TO TELL YOU THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ABOUT JOE BECKER AND BECKERS TAX SERVICE ARE PURE LIES. i AM A TAX PREPARER MYSELF AND i PERSONALLY KNOW HIM. HE IS A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND DOES NOT DO THE UNSUPORTED ALEDGED ALLOGATIONS. FIRST OF ALL, DIDNT THIESE PEOPLE SIGN THIER RETURN? SECONDLY, THE IRS IS PRESENATLY AUDITING RETURNS FROM 2005 AND 2006. THEY DO NOT AUDIT YOU SIX MONTHS LATER. THIRDLY, WHEN FIGHTING THE IRS, THE ACCOUNTANT NEEDS THE CLIENT TO SUBMIT RECEIPTS, DEDUCTIONS, AND MILEAGE LOGS. HAVING SEEING BECKER'S TAX SERVICE IN ACTION, I KNOW THEY WOULD REQUEST THIS TYPE OF DOCUTMENTATION FROM THEIR CLIENTS. WHEN I SPOKE WITH JOSEPH BECKER ABOUT THESE LIES, HE LAUGHED AN SAID THEY WERE PROBABLY FROM DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEES OR RANDAL KLEIN WHO WAS LOCKED OUT OF BECKER'S TAX SERVICE. I FOR ONE BELIEVE IF ANYONE TRUELY HAD INTEGRITY OR EVIDENCE OF ANY MISDOINGS, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE SIGNED THE TAX RETURN AND THEY WOULD NOT BE ATTACKING MY FRIEND HERE.

Pros: GREAT TAXMAN, RELIABLE, INTEGRITY, AVAILABLE

Cons: NONE

Becker's Tax Service is Great. They do the payroll, bookkeeping, and incometax preparation for all of my companies. Joseph Becker works seven days a week and is always available. He knows and understands how busiensses work. I know Joe used to be a CPA, but his company is and always was a bookkeeping and tax firm. Same knowledge and caliber service at a lower price. Over the years he has handled all my IRS problems and audits and has done an outstanding job. I will never take my busienss from Becker's Tax Service, and will keep referring them to everyone I know.

I went here because a friend told me "Joe" could get me more money. Against my better judgement I let this man prepare my taxes and low and behold, he got me several hundred dollars more than I normally would get. However, about 6 months later I received a notice that I was being audited. Joe said they would represent me free and so against my better judgement (again) I let this "firm" represent me. When I would call to check on the progress of my case I was told it was all under control. Apparently it was not under control, as 3 months later my bank account was garnished, leaving me nothing. I ended up calling the agent assigned to my case and handling the case myself. The agent told me that they had received no contact from Becker's office and that was the reason they garnished my bank account. The agent also informed me that there were deductions on my return that I wasn't aware of...something about some Unreimbursed Employee Business expenses. He asked me for receipts, etc to prove this expenses and of course I didn't have any...so they disallowed the deductions. Now I am stuck owing 3 times more than the "extra" money Joe got me. I worked out a payment plan for the remaining balance myself...but in the meantime my bank account was wiped out and I had to borrow money from relatives just to get by. I never asked Mr. Becker to cheat on my taxes...I just assumed he knew some things other accountants don;t hence the reason I got more $ back. Turns out, he just knows how to cheat the system...which makes his clients happy until the audit. My advice: avoid this place at all costs.

Pros: None - absolutely none.

Cons: You will get audited!

I urge you to read this review before having Joe Becker touch your taxes.
Joe Becker has had his CPA license revoked in the state of Texas for doing illegal business. There are many people that I know that have gone to Becker's Tax Service to have their taxes prepared and the great thing is he gets you a lot of money back up front. How he does this is by lying and cheating the system. Then within a year you will get a letter from the IRS giving you 30 days to prove all of your write offs and if you have no proof then you are sent a bill that has to be paid with in a certain amount of time. This fee also includes penalties from not being paid on time. I urge you to not use this man and to tell everyone you know that he is a FRAUD!
