WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Just when you thought Jeff Bezos’ thirst for power over every aspect of our daily lives had been satiated, he’s now set his sights on the world of accounting. Business Insider recently reported that Bezos has put $100 million behind Pilot, a startup that aims to dominate the world of accounting and tax services for small and mid-size businesses in the United States. 

This investment, which has helped the company earn a valuation of $1.2 billion, has Pilot on pace to be the country’s largest accounting firm. As someone who has been in the business for nearly 30 years as the CEO of Engineered Tax Services, this is unheard of and completely unprecedented.
