NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wolters Kluwer has been named “Americas Tax Technology Firm of the Year” by International Tax Review. The award, which recognizes a tax-technology service provider whose process or system has improved the efficiency of an in-house tax department, was presented to Wolters Kluwer for its innovative CCH AnswerConnect solution at the International Tax Review’s 12th annual Americas Tax Awards ceremony in New York last Thursday.
