Does Drake Tax run on a Mac or Linux operating system?


Currently there is no version of Drake Tax that is written for installation directly on a Mac or Linux operating system. Some users have been able to successfully run Drake Tax on a Virtual Windows environment installed on a Mac or Linux operating system, however, this configuration is not officially supported. Troubleshooting for this setup is not available with the assistance of Drake support.

Even when running a Virtual Windows environment, on the newest Mac products running the M1 family of chipsets, Drake will not function as expected due to those chips being ARM-based processors.

A Mac computer can be used if accessing Drake through the Hosting on Rightworks product; see Related Links below. 

See Related Links below for supported and minimum system requirements.
