I am new to Beckett Tax this year in 2021, and chose Bethany Alexander based on her outstanding reviews. I was not disappointed.Bethany greeted me with a welcome smile and friendly, easygoing personality.She is warm, very knowledgable, and put me at ease very quickly. She was great at explaining the information and tax law that applied to me, and answered all my questions.Shes a gift, and I wont want anyone but her to do my taxes from now on.Thanks Bethany!

I have worked with Tonya to file my tax returns for the past two years and she has been amazing! She makes the process so easy - even after getting married this year and having 5 W2s on top of some 1099s, our appointment was less than half an hour because she put so much work in with everything in advance of the appointment. Their prices are also extremely reasonable. Highly recommend!

Review №3

Beckett Tax is amazing! We used to have our taxes done by Duane Beckett before he retired, and now we go to Tylor! Hes been great to work with for the past 2 years! I highly recommend Beckett Tax for all of your tax & accounting needs!

Review №4

I miss Duane Beckett. He was the reason I used Beckett Tax for filing my taxes for the last 8 years. This is not the same company. His nephew took it over, now no one answers the phones EVER. Its impersonal and you will not feel like a valued customer. I actually went to the office just so I could make an appointment because no one returns calls. The office was remodeled, tons of young 20 something staff hanging out. So why couldnt they call back or even answer the phone?COVID , the reason for the tax preparer working remotely, but for the amount of money they are charging for the services (which is much more than I used to pay Duane who I got face to face contact from a funny sweet kind man who gave way better customer service). I think Ill forgo this company in the future.

Review №5

First year using them, blown away by their service, friendliness, and how welcoming their staff is. I felt like I was visiting friends, not doing some type business transaction. Wow! Support local, support a business that actually cares about you, go to Breckett for you tax and accounting needs.

Review №6

For several years I’ve been doing my taxes with Bethany Alexander. She is fantastic! Shes is highly professional, patient, responsive, and caring. I dont know what I did good in life, but Ive been definitely rewarded with Bethany! Awesome service! Awesome communication! Im so happy to have a tax specialist I fully trust!

Review №7

Great service from a knowledgeable, professional staff. All my questions were answered promptly and I felt like they really cared. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.

Review №8

Great place to get your taxes done. Quick and painless.

Review №9

I’ve been using Beckett Tax for a number of years. Fast, knowledgeable, and professional. Recommend them to my family and friends.

Review №10

It’s a shame Duane is not still the owner. Tylor was not wearing a mask so obviously he doesn’t care about his clients. I felt this business scammed me and tried to blame it on me. They no showed on me and demanded money from me. So much for helping local business. Tylor threatened me. I should have not had to pay a $60 fee for your no show. I wouldnt return here anyway. Now I have $60 less to pay a bill or eat with while you and your staff are probably driving NEW luxury vehicles and eating at fancy restaurants.

Review №11

Great and affordable service.

Review №12

Beckett Tax & Accounting came to me upon a friends referral some 8 years ago. Within that time I have not only received the best tax advice but exemplary customer service from a highly-knowledgeable dream team who understand various tax laws, how they change year to year, and ultimately how they impact you, the client. This latter note is of significance for one needs such wherewithal regarding personal finances to better understand the minutiae as much as the big picture. And Beckett Tax treats your presence as if you are the only one in the room. As with finding a good doctor or mechanic, finding a good tax preparer is just as vital. So to the point I recently moved 650 miles away... yet Beckett Tax remains the team. R. Powers

Review №13

Always Great Service. When I first moved to the US, my wife and I needed some advice on taxes and an ITIN as Im an immigrant. Duane was awesome and helpful and very affordable. Even though Duane is now retired and sold the business, everyone there is super helpful and compared to many places around town, still very affordable.

Review №14

Bethany is so friendly and always ask if there are changes. They remodeled and has more privacy. Most important fees are really reasonable. HIGHLY recommend.

Review №15

I regularly get my taxes done here because they have respectable, decent and knowledgeable staff. They charge reasonable fees for their services, and seldom make errors. Theyre pretty fast, too!

Review №16

Great People ! Very knowledgeable

Review №17

The employees here did a great job with my taxes. They answered all my questions. They were also courteous and professional. Highly recommended.

Review №18

I had a great experience with Teresa K at Beckett tax. This was my first time filing taxes and Teresa made me feel comfortable & encouraged me to ask questions. She even gave me helpful tips for next year. She was so authentic and made the experience stress free. Everyone I encountered at Beckett tax was kind and professional. Thanks again Teresa and Beckett tax, I’ll see you next year.Alyssa

Review №19

Bethany was a joy to work with. In and out in less than an hour with a larger return in the past. Were very grateful to have found Beckett and especially, Bethany. Thank you so much!!

Review №20

Gary was amazing! I had no clue what to do as a business owner and he made sure I got the most out of my tax return. Will most certainly come back!

Review №21

It was so easy to schedule an appointment, Tonya Gile was absolutely wonderful and explained any questions that I had. I would most definitely recommend Beckett Tax to help get your taxes sorted.

Review №22

Bethany was incredibly honest and knowledgeable! I appreciate her input to my unique tax situation! Highly recommend!!

Review №23

Duane Beckett and his staff have done my federal and state income tax returns for nearly 10 years. He was referred to me by a business colleague. My wife and I will typically go to his office and over the last few years, he is the one who has been preparing our taxes. Because its done very quick and efficiently. (however I do spend a fair amount of time organizing information so each visit is about an hour) each visit last about an hour.He prepares and files the taxes electronically. Year after year, most of the forms are populated already and he makes any changes necessary. By the time we leave both federal and state income taxes are filed. Over the years we have never had any audit or revision for taxes. Typically if any refund is due, the federal refund arrives within a week and the state within two weeks.Duane and his staff are both efficient and friendly. Theyre very knowledgeable. The fees for filing state and federal taxes are more than reasonable. He is highly recommended.

Review №24

Weston did a great job with our taxes this year! He was able to answer a lot of questions that we had, and their prices were more than reasonable.

Review №25

Fantastic Tax advise and filing. Duane is very personable and direct as well as a great price! The best tax filing Ive ever had and Ill be coming back for years to come. Great peace of mind for filing your taxes.

Review №26

When I needed a tax professional, I went with Beckett Tax simply because of the good Google reviews. I’m so pleased with the prompt, courteous service, near immediate response times to my e-mails, bending over backwards to make things easier and more convenient for me, and fair pricing. Thank you, Tonya! I feel so much better having this problem done and done right! :)

Review №27

The reviews for Beckett dont lie. A friend of mine referred me to Duane Beckett for a second opinion on my personal and business taxes after my previous accountant told me that I owed an unbelievable amount of income tax for my second year in business. I thought that maybe I just didnt plan things right, or that there was something else going on. I know how busy accountants can be throughout the year, and so I wasnt expecting to get in so quick. I called, mentioned my situation and the person who referred me, and had an appointment set up with Duane for the next day. Within 5 minutes of speaking with him, I had a hunch that I made the right decision. After going over everything, Duane was able to find one big mistake that my previous accountant made, as well as a couple of deductions that were missed as well. By the time our 90 minute meeting was over, I knew I had found the right fit. Duane is very easy to speak to, and with his 25 years of experience as a CPA, he is extremely knowledgeable and a pro at navigating the tax world. I could tell that he really just wants to help people. And within the past week, I found out that I know about a dozen people who get their taxes done at Beckett. I cant recommend them enough. (Remember though, accountants are very busy and sometimes arent able to take on every person who calls them. Be persistent and hopefully they will be able to take you on as a client) Thank you so much!It gets better: I called today to ask Duane a question but Gary answered. I asked my question to him to see if he could answer it and he took his time to answer it.

Review №28

I have been going to Beckett Tax for a couple years now and absolutely love it. I highly recommend for anyone trying to find the perfect place to file their taxes with! They are extremely reasonable with pricing. Amazing hours including weekend hours for people who work a lot during the week. I referred a couple people this last season who didn’t think they’d get anything back and have to pay in because of student loans and they qualified to get a lot of money back! So again I highly recommend Beckett!

Review №29

Super great experience! Weston was fantastic and helped us knock this years return out seamlessly and gave us great pointers to maximize next years!

Review №30

This is our third year doing taxes with Tanya at Beckett Tax. She continues to do such a great job. Everyone who works there is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We recommend Beckett Tax to all of our friends. We have no problem scheduling an appointment and are seen right away. Smooth and stress free process.

Review №31

I went to Beckett by chance in regards to a letter from IRS. Thats when i met with Tylor. My interactions have been with Tylor so far, and we are impressed with him. Its like speaking to a friend, than a tax professional. But, he still goes about this work professionally. I am sure this character is maintained by everyone in the Beckett team. He quickly deduced the tax issues in front of me giving the the best possible resolutions. I know where i am getting my taxes done from now on, as i now know i get MORE for the price i pay.

Review №32

As a new independent contractor (working remotely for a company in Canada), I was a bit overwhelmed in figuring out my quarterly estimated taxes. I was ready to come in for an appointment and sit down to talk things through as a new client, but Duane returned my call and spent the next twenty minutes on the phone assuring me it wasnt as complicated as I thought, how to figure my estimates, and how to make the payment itself. He communicated very clearly and was focused solely on our conversation and listened to all of my concerns. I would do business with him in a heartbeat.

Review №33

Beckett Tax is a Knowledgeable and Friendly place to file your taxes. Bethany, our tax professional did an Excellent job. She was courteous and answered all the tax related questions I asked. I would recommend Beckett Tax to anyone who needs help filing their Federal and State tax returns.

Review №34

Duane is great! Great guy and knows his stuff. Weve been coming to Beckett Tax for almost 15 years even though weve moved out of state. We stick with him because hes honest, fair, and helps you get the most out of your return. Hes great with personal and business taxes. I strongly recommend!

Review №35

Professional, Knowledgeable, and generally Fantastic to work with!Took the time to answer all my new-business owner questions and to guide me through the process.Duane and his team have continually provided a superior experience. Looking forward to working with them again in the future.

Review №36

Moved to Madison just over a year ago and left a great accountant behind. We were so glad to have chosen this place based on reviews. Helpful, super friendly, efficient and very reasonably priced. We have found our accountant in Madison. Thanks Duane!

Review №37

I had a great experience with Bethany. She was very helpful and broke everything down in a timely matter and did an awesome job with my refund. I highly recommend this tax place everyone is very sweet and professional. It was a reasonable price as well and will be back next year to file with them!!!!

Review №38

I had a very positive experience using Beckett Tax to process and file my 2016 taxes. They were very affordable (much less than the national chain tax places), and were also able to offer suggestions that will save me money on next years taxes. I would highly recommend Beckett Tax!

Review №39

This we the best and smoothest tax filing experience ever! Everything was explained to me , the staff was kind and helpful, my appointment was timely and I felt comfortable and heard and that I was in great competent hands. I will come here every year from now on!

Review №40

By far the best experiences Ive had with tax preparation. Duane Beckett brings to the table expert knowledge and wonderful people skills. The whole team is very professional -- from confirming appointments to the tax prep itself to following up when necessary. Very fair prices for their services. This is about as close as youll get to having an enjoyable experience doing taxes!

Review №41

My second year of getting taxes done here. Used to use Turbo Tax but I found that it always seemed to take a long time. 2-4 hrs. And there were a lot of tax questions I simply didn’t understand. So, I guessed on a few things. Decided last year to try an actual tax professional and am very happy I did. Takes about 30-40 minutes, mostly cause we asked quite a few questions. Much more confident in having an accurate, properly done tax return. Bethany is great, definitely recommend and we will be going back next year.

Review №42

Heidi was great! Will definitely come back next year!

Review №43

Add another note of appreciation to this long list. After moving to the Madison area and looking for a new Accountant for my taxes, I spent time reviewing sites and other recommendations. I choose Duane after all of the reviews and was not disappointed. Duane performed my taxes in 2017 and it was not only a breeze but a great experience. Looking forward to my next session in 2018. Who else would make filing your taxes fun? No one but Duane!

Review №44

After 5 years of doing taxes on my own, I no longer had time to do them on my own. I took them to Beckett tax on a Saturday, and I got a call first thing Monday with all my questions answered.Beckett is friendly, local, and very thorough with all of our tax needs and finances. Will be going back to them next year!

Review №45

The cost wasn’t very expensive even though I had to file for two different states. Heidi was very helpful even though my situation resulted in me having to file an extension due to mistakes made in 2018 at another tax tax.

Review №46

They are always doing their best to find all the credits you can get. Very kind, friendly and respectful with me. Its been several years that i get my tax return with them and every year and happy to go back again.

Review №47

I have been using Beckett Tax for many years. They are convenient, reliable, responsible, and well-informed. I schedule an appointment with them, pull my paperwork together, spend about an hour, and Im done! Each year they find things that save me more money than I pay them to do my returns. And they charge much less than big-name tax preparation companies. Im a fan!

Review №48

Excellent place to get your taxes taken care of. I have been going to Beckett for a few years now - its a fantastic place!! Small operation that really takes care of you and makes sure you understand everything. I highly recommend them.

Review №49

We have been to Beckett Tax the past 5 years and have had excellent service each time. We have gotten to know Bethany and love having her do our taxes, very professional but friendly too. Beckett Tax has great prices as well and we recommend them to others.

Review №50

Great experience! Way better and cheaper than H&R Block! I had a lot military things including a deployment and move across country. They took my paper work 2 weeks early and had it all entered and ready for my appointment! I will go back for sure!

Review №51

Duane Beckett has helped me complete both business and personal income taxes for many years. Whether it is the middle of tax filing season or in the summer or fall when I have a tax planning question or a concern Duane is quick to schedule a call or meeting. He and his staff are accessible. I have referred many friends and business customers to Beckett Tax. After they meet with the experts at Beckett tax, I hear a lot of Thank Yous from them. Take the stress out of tax preparation, go see Beckett tax.

Review №52

I have had my taxes done by Tylor and others at Beckett for years now and they are the best. I’ve always been treated good and they are very professional and friendly.

Review №53

All of the people follow Duanes lead and offer superb customer service. They offer great value and they care about their customers. I wouldnt go anywhere else.UPDATED: We continue to be happy with our choice to get taxes done at Beckett tax. Tylor helped us navigate solar tax credits and Electric Vehicle tax credits and helped us maximize our our return.

Review №54

I have been going to Beckett for my small business taxes since my business started in 2011. Everyone is friendly, professional, and they know their stuff. They truly have a heart for small business. And their rates are extremely reasonable. Highly recommended!

Review №55

Fantastic!! Very knowledgeable, easy to work with, makes the whole tax thing almost enjoyable. This is the second year Ive gone to Beckett Tax, and I will definitely be back next year. Would highly, highly recommend.

Review №57

Duane Beckett and all his staff are efficient and accurate. They are also at your service for any IRS issue regardless of Federal or State.I highly recommend Beckett Tax. They are the best!

Review №58

We just completed our seventh year of filing taxes with Duane. Weve moved away from Madison, but we still return to Duane to take care of our taxes each year. He is so competent and has helped us out with several complex tax issues and follow-up issues with the IRS as well. He always goes to bat for us and make taxes fun. We dont know what we do without him! He and his staff are wonderful people!

Review №66

We were very happy. We used a different service last year and it was a nightmare. Beckett was exactly the opposite--competent and friendly. And reasonably priced.

Review №67

Wonderful service and I feel like they have a genuine concern for me and my situation. I recommend Beckett Tax to everyone. I wish I would have found them sooner.

Review №71

Bethany is awesome!!! She is very professional and always available for questions. She does a great job! I refer Beckett Tax to all my friends.

Review №72

They were half the cost of Liberty Tax and twice the professionalism. I was referred to them by several friends and neighbors and am happy to have listened to them. I have so weird and complicated taxes and they spent extra time making sure they got everything right.

Review №73

Heading back for the third year in a row. Very knowledgeable and fairly priced. Highly recommend.

I switched to Beckett Tax after being neglected/underserved by one of Madisons largest firms for several years.I give my highest recommendation to Beckett Tax -- they have done a superb and competent job with our small business & personal taxes, and are both responsive and proactive.

Review №75

Review №76

Beckett tax knows what the are doing. Fantastic people, they make your tax experience so much less stressful. I highly recommend them

Review №77

Duane is the man, and his folks RULE. I had some state tax problems because Im tax-stupid. He fought for me, and solved all my problems super simply. I go to him every year now, and partly just to hang out with the guy and trade stories. I used to hate tax time. Duane gets it done, and its fun. Weird but true.

Review №78

I needed help preparing a decedent estate tax return. I called to inquire about retaining their services. Was told Duane was only person with proper experience to to speak with. Was told later that he was far to busy to speak with me and turned me away. To their credit, they did call back quickly and my rejection was prompt and courteous. This is July which is typically a slow season for tax preparation so possibly doing a bit of cherry picking or felt unsure of ability to do return. Most of the reviews seem to be about pretty simple returns so if you have anything more complicated you may want to consider looking elsewhere.

Review №79

I really appreciate that we have the same person every year and that our taxes are prepared on the spot with no waiting.

Review №80

Tylor did a great job for us, super efficiently, and was awesome when we had follow up questions. Easy communication by email afterward too.

Review №84

Thank you for making the process of doing taxes a little less terrible! I cant say enough about the professionalism and caring attitude of the CPA I worked with. Beckett Tax was great!

Review №98

Good quick service excellent people. Very informative

Review №99

I have worked with Tonya since 2012 and she is great! I recommend Beckett Tax everytime!

Review №100

Wow! What a gem of a place. The place that formerly did my taxes charged me $40 more, made me drop off my info, then go back to sign and get my stuff, and would only take checks or cash. Not Beckett: got the taxes done in one visit with a credit card, and I participated, so now I have more information that will help me prepare for the future. I didnt have all my stuff with me, so Katie went on line, figured out how to get it, and patiently waited to get what was needed. Go here, and tell your friends, stop wasting your time and money, you wont be sorry!
