About Vertex

Helping companies grow with confidence through proven tax technology that simplifies the complex.

Vertex is the only tax technology provider that has consistently maintained an unwavering commitment to corporate tax professionals for over 40 years.

In 1978, Ray Westphal started Vertex Inc., providing paper-based National Sales Tax manuals that included all general jurisdiction, products rules/rates and regulations. His wife, Antoinette Westphal, joined as our first employee and by the early 1990s, the company was offering an expanded collection of solutions for managing transaction tax. Their three children, Amanda, Stevie and Jeff, joined the business in the 90s and Jeff served as CEO from 2001 until 2016. All three still serve on our board of directors.
