Avalara Announces Kelly S Mathews, LLC as Titanium Sponsor for CRUSH DC

SEATTLE — February 8, 2018 — Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based tax compliance automation for businesses, today announced Kelly S Mathews LLC (KSMLLC) as a titanium sponsor of Avalara CRUSH,  the premier event for transaction tax professionals that attracts expert practitioners across the tax and accounting industry to discuss a shared vision for the future of global tax compliance.

KSMLLC provides oil and gas industry clients with highly specialized motor fuel tax compliance, consulting, and software implementation services.

As a titanium sponsor of CRUSH DC, KSMLLC will lead a breakout session, provide product demonstrations, and have experts on site to engage with conference participants, including Avalara customers, business and technology partners, accounting leaders and CPAs, and other industry experts.   

“As a previous CRUSH sponsor, there was little deliberation before we opted for a top-shelf sponsorship for CRUSH DC,” said Kelly S. Mathews, president and founder of KSMLLC. “CRUSH sponsorship gives us the opportunity to speak directly with attendees, helping them understand the distinct tax challenges faced by companies in the motor fuels industry, and underscoring how we can help provide solutions for their business. Avalara is a great partner — they know how to put on a first-rate conference; we’re looking forward to another great CRUSH event!”
