Avalara Partners With Illinois CPA Society


Cloud-based sales tax and compliance automation technology provider Avalara has formed a strategic alliance with the Illinois CPA Society.

The ICPAS’s more than 23,000 professional members will now have free access to up-to-date sales and use tax and value added tax tools and resources. Member accounting firms will also have the opportunity to participate in Avalara partnering programs.

“Alliances with key software solution providers like Avalara are especially important to our CPA members, both in public practice and in business and industry, who need more information in technical areas such as sales and use tax reporting and compliance,” stated Todd Shapiro, ICPAS president and CEO. “We also believe that Avalara’s cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model, will help our members become even more efficient and productive in dealing with their clients and customers in the future.”  

“Our aim is to be the clear leader in educating and supporting accounting professionals in all aspects of sales and use tax compliance, including providing timely legislative updates,” stated Marshal Kushniruk, executive vice president of global business development at Avalara. “Our alliance with the Illinois CPA Society is an important step in further connecting with the most proactive and forward-looking state CPA societies in the U.S.”
