SEATTLE, WA — February 27, 2020 — Avalara (NYSE: AVLR), a leading provider of cloud-based tax compliance automation for businesses of all sizes, today announced the return of RSM US LLP ("RSM") — the nation's leading provider of audit, tax, and consulting services focused on the middle market — as Diamond sponsor of Avalara’s fifth annual CRUSH conference, the industry’s premier event for transaction tax professionals.

The conference, themed The Future of Tax Compliance — Now, will take place May 12–14, 2020, in St. Louis, Missouri, bringing together experts and practitioners at the forefront of the complex world of tax compliance. CRUSH attendees will have ample opportunities over three days to learn and network with hundreds of peers and experts. And, for the first time at CRUSH, attendees will learn about the road map for Avalara, including new products and future growth, directly from Avalara CEO Scott McFarlane.

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

“As the world of transaction tax becomes increasingly complex nearly two years following the South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. ruling, Avalara’s CRUSH conference takes on an ever more significant role in helping businesses untangle, comprehend, and navigate today's most confounding tax challenges, and move toward compliance,” said Steve Parish, principal and sales and use tax automation national lead at RSM US LLP. “To that end, we’re enthusiastically continuing to support what we feel is the industry’s premier tax compliance event.”
