Six Models of Tax Innovation

Congratulations to ALDI, Best Buy, Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Koppers, and United Services Automobile Association (USAA)!

These six companies were honored with Corporate Tax Innovation Awards at this year’s annual Vertex Exchange conference last week.

The award honors companies that have developed innovative ways to leverage software and services from Vertex to solve complex business challenges. This year’s winners have demonstrated world-class leadership and best practices for corporate tax technology – they also happen to reflect this year’s Vertex Exchange theme, “Ideas that Ignite.

David DeStefano, who formally stepped into his role as Vertex CEO during the conference, recognized our Innovation Award Winners for “demonstrating a leading-edge approach to tax management while adeptly overcoming diverse challenges and driving increased efficiency.” For more information on these leading-edge approaches, you can read about each Corporate Tax Innovation Award winner here.
