Meet the Team


Joe M. Tucker CPA, CGMA

Joe graduated from UNA in 1970 with a degree in accounting and minor in economics. “I have always liked helping people solve their economic difficulties,” he says.  After graduation Joe continued to hone his skills in the profession, passing the CPA in 1974.  In 1976, went out on his own to form what has become Joe M. Tucker, CPA, PC.  From that point on he has established himself as “one of the most knowledgeable and personable” CPA’s in Northwest Alabama. It is no secret that there have been times during his career that he has lost clients due to his strong convictions regarding ethical business practice and his commitment to integrity and service to the community.
