More About Pay Per Return

Drake’s Pay Per Return (PPR) version may be attractive to offices that prepare fewer than 85 returns in a year.

The PPR package includes 15 returns for just $300. That’s only $20 per return, and you can purchase additional returns within the software at $20 each. You may complete numerous states, electronically file, or amend a return, and it still counts as only one return.

After you’ve purchased 85 returns, you may convert your package to the Unlimited version. Please call Drake Accounting at (828) 349-5900 to convert your package and receive your Drake Unlimited serial number.

Some additional points to keep in mind, to help you determine if the PPR version is for you:

  • PPR returns are counted as they are created in Drake. To reduce the chances of a return being created in error, SSN validation is required when creating a new return. Each return created in the Quick Estimator will count as one return. Drake test returns do not count.
  • When opening a return updated from a prior year, you are prompted to either count the return or open the return as read only. All fields are grayed out in read-only view.
  • SSNs or EINs may be changed through File Maintenance, but the new SSN or EIN counts as another return.
  • If you select the PPR package, you may purchase the Client Write-Up package for $295 ($150 off the regular price).
