Avalara Hosting Its Third Annual Tax Bash, CRUSH, in 2018

Heading to Washington D.C. next year, CRUSH DC focuses on the future of tax compliance

SEATTLE and WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Now in its third year, Avalara’s CRUSH event is the premier event for transaction tax professionals. And we’re back: over two days in May, Avalara will bring together expert practitioners across the accounting industry to discuss a shared vision for the future of global tax compliance. Registration for the event is now open at www.avalaracrush.com.

CRUSH DC guests, made up of Avalara’s customers, business and technology partners, accounting leaders and CPAs, and other industry experts, will walk away with advanced knowledge of how emerging trends in tax and technology will impact their businesses and roles in coming years, as well as a lot of Avalara Orange gear. As the largest tax conference of its kind, there is no better venue for speaking with peers who are addressing challenges and implementing changes similar to your own.

“Our customers and partners are our greatest source of information and inspiration. Avalara CRUSH conferences are built to help our guests master tax compliance, but our team comes away with more energy and ideas than we could have hoped for each year. This year we’re looking forward to more connections, more thought leadership, and more fun, all at the epicenter of U.S. tax policy, Washington D.C.,” said Scott McFarlane, CEO of Avalara.
