Julio Gonzalez, National Tax Reform Expert, is the founder and CEO of Engineered Tax Services, Inc. (ETS). Julio's focus was to bring specialized engineering tax studies to mainstream America, which historically had only been available to Fortune 500 companies through the Big 4 National Accounting Firms. ETS focuses on cost segregation and R&D tax studies. For Julio, the primary rule to becoming a successful entrepreneur is all about hard work and trying to make sure that he can out work his competition every day. “I start my day at 5am by coming to office. This way I am making sure that I am working hard while the competition is still sleeping.”
"Engineered Tax Services is using their engineering, scientific and tax team to provide one of the most important federal and state tax credits available to United States businesses in the form of research and development tax credits (R&D)."
Today, Julio has culminated into an industry leader owing to his hard work, devotion towards his employees and devotion to a culture that brings them happiness and rewards them. Today, ETS is one of the largest, fastest growing, and most innovative engineering, energy, and specialty tax credit services firms in the country and one of the country’s largest certified Minority companies. It is pertinent to mention that Julio is also the founder of several other family operational companies including his family office, Gonzalez Family Office (GFO), Calle Gato Ocho (CGO), Engineered Tax Exchange (ETE) and Engineered Family Office (EFO).
According to Julio, for decades only Fortune 500 and Public companies in the United States had access to Federal Tax Credits that required engineering and scientific expertise. “I decided two decades ago to bring these resources to CPA firms nationwide to be able to provide these important tax credit to their clients,” explains Julio. “I wanted to marry the science of engineering with the principles of tax and accounting. And bring specialty tax services to mainstream America that were previously only available to public companies through the Big 4 accounting firms.”
Engineered Tax Services is using their engineering, scientific and tax team to provide one of the most important federal and state tax credits available to United States businesses in the form of research and development tax credits (R&D). Research and Development tax credits reward United States companies for hiring United States based employees whose jobs are innovative in nature. “As a country we reward companies that invest in US based labor to create innovation. We certify their innovative labor activities to in essence provide a form of refund of labor for their investment in the creation and growth of desired jobs in the United States,” adds Julio. “Engineered Tax Services’ high level of service and professionalism comes from hiring the very best and brightest people and creating a platform for them that is exciting, healthy and stable.”
Today the most recent challenge has been the Pandemic that is affecting any and every industry. During this challenging time Julio is pivoting to give most employees the ability to work from home and pioneering to make sure Engineered Tax Services sells through different channels as all their conferences have been cancelled. “We had to adjust quickly but I’m proud to say I never laid off or terminated any employees during the pandemic. We saved every employee and actually added new staff,” says Julio. “During the Pandemic we were working hard to educate clients that they were eligible for refunds based on the tax laws and that with our studies we good generate substantial refunds for them that would help them survive the pandemic without having to shut down their businesses.”
For the days to come Engineered Tax Services is working on several acquisitions to grow their existing services and add additional services that will be complimentary to their clients. “We aim at offering the most unique solutions to our clients, hand-in-hand leading them towards enhanced productivity,” adds Julio.IE
