About Us

D. Earls Tax Service has been a staple in North Texas for more than 44 years. It all started when Delmer & Maggie Earls founded the family owned and operated company in 1978 by opening the first office in Rockwall. They grew to include offices in Cumby, Pilot Point & Mesquite before purchasing permanent offices in Greenville and Quinlan in the early 1990’s.

Delmer & Maggie were community staples; involved in every aspect of community  development.

After the passing of Maggie in 1992, Delmer was comforted by the overwhelming support of his community neighbors.

Shortly after this trying time his son, David, took over the Greenville location while his son, Dennis, took over the Quinlan location, working with his sister Debbie, to continue their father’s dream of a lifelong family enterprise.

Delmer continued to be an active participant in every aspect of the company until his unexpected death in March 2012.

Delmer saw several transitions of his family company including the tragic loss of his sons, David and Dennis, and the promotion of his grandson, Daniel Earls, to President of D. Earls Tax Service in 2008.

In the last 10 years, Daniel and his wife, Megan have poured their heart and souls into the business and are thrilled to celebrate 40 years and are excited to announce their son, Dylan as the 4th generation. In the 40 years since D. Earls Tax Service first opened its doors there have been many changes brought to N. Texas; we are proud to be a consistent staple to our thriving community.
