Our History

Why can’t small- and mid-sized business enjoy the same tax breaks as gigantic corporations? That’s the dream that fueled our founder, Julio Gonzalez, when he established Engineered Tax Services (ETS) in 2001. A professional CPA, Julio noticed that Big Business was able to reap big tax breaks as a result of such tax strategies as cost segregation and R&D tax credits. Why couldn’t America’s small businesses—the backbone of the U.S. economy— take advantage of the same benefits? As a result, he offered to mainstream America specialized engineering tax studies that, up to then, had only been available to the Fortune 500 and public companies through the then-Big 8 national accounting firms.

Over 20 years later, ETS has been extremely successful in delivering these winning tax solutions to the American middle class, becoming the leading specialty tax practice in the United States. In 2020, ETS established the largest specialty tax and consultative firm to the CPA community nationwide by acquiring The Growth Partnership, a leading advisory group to the CPA community (which also produces The Rosenberg Survey, the benchmark survey of U.S. mid-sized accounting firms) and ABLE CRM, a company that customizes Customer Relationship Management systems for CPA firms so CPAs can make the best use of limited time. 

The alliance program for the nation's top CPAs

In 2021, ETS acquired Inside Public Accounting, a widely respected research organization devoted to the CPA community, which produces the leading U.S. survey of top-tier accounting firms. In 2022, ETS embarked on yet another venture—the creation of a national accounting alliance program for CPAs known as HABU (Highest and Best Use), which offers CPA firms access to experts so they can offer services beyond their expertise.

With 26 offices nationally, ETS is headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Our Founder

Julio Gonzalez is an entrepreneur who, in 2001, founded Engineered Tax Services, the largest licensed tax credits and incentives advisory firm in the United States, devoted to helping small businesses.

His status as a national tax reform expert was cemented in 2017, when he was appointed by Vice President Mike Pence to the U.S. Tax Roundtable; his task was to work with Congress to pass tax reform (which he did).

Our Mission
