Avalara Announces RSM as Diamond Sponsor of CRUSH19 in Huntington Beach

SEATTLE, WA — March 26, 2019 — Avalara (NYSE: AVLR), a leading provider of tax compliance automation software for businesses of all sizes, continues the countdown to its fourth annual CRUSH conference, the industry's premier event for transaction tax professionals. RSM US LLP ("RSM") — the nation's leading provider of audit, tax, and consulting services focused on the middle market — will join CRUSH19 as the event’s Diamond sponsor.

This year’s event, themed The Path Forward for Tax Compliance, will take place May 8–10 in Huntington Beach, California. Bringing together the world’s experts and practitioners at the forefront of the shifting world of transaction tax, CRUSH offers attendees opportunities to learn, educate, and network with hundreds of peers and experts.

RSM will participate in the event alongside attendees who gain advanced knowledge of how emerging trends in tax and technology will impact their businesses and roles in coming years.

"This is a pinnacle year in which we’ve seen 51 years of sales tax rulings unravel with the South Dakota v. Wayfair ruling, and predictions we’ve made in past years are now coming to fruition, with states passing new legislation in domino fashion and complexity abounding for businesses,” said Steve Parish, principal and sales and use tax automation national lead at RSM US LLP. “CRUSH19 will play an important and very timely role in convening the best minds in the industry to educate, inform, and help guide attendees on a broad range of compliance topics. RSM is committed to working closely with Avalara to further our clients’ knowledge and understanding of key transactional tax concepts and trends, better guide their tax compliance strategy, and help reduce risk. We're truly pleased to sponsor and participate in CRUSH19."
