Drake System Requirements
View the minimum and recommended Drake Software System Requirements.
Drake’s Pay-Per-Return (PPR) version may suit offices that prepare fewer than 85 returns in a year. After you’ve bought 85 returns, you'll be automatically converted to the Unlimited version at no extra cost.
The PPR package includes 15 returns for $300. That’s $20 per return, and you can buy additional returns within the software at $20 each. You may complete numerous states, e-file, or amend a return, and it still counts as only one return.
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.
- An Internet connection is required in order to use Drake PPR.
- 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 buy the DrakeCWU program for $295 ($150 off the regular price).
