Purchase Drake Software

Thank you for choosing Drake Software! We are committed to our new partnership and your success. The questions that follow will step you through the process of purchasing Drake Software products online with a credit or debit card. We look forward to serving you!
Are you going to electronically file tax returns with the IRS?
Do you have an Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN)?

Since you plan to e-file returns, we need a copy of your IRS e-file Application Summary. Not sure how to retrieve it? No worries – after completing your Drake Tax order, we’ll follow up with an email to explain where to find it and how to upload it to us in just a few steps. Once we receive the e-file Application Summary, we can verify and activate your account. This verification process is an important part of the IRS’s efforts to help protect EROs, like yourself, and the tax ecosystem as a whole from fraudulent activity.

Account is ineligible for online sales. Contact Drake Accounting at (828) 349-5700.

Important: You must have an EFIN (Electronic Filing Identification Number) in order to electronically file tax returns with the IRS. Being approved for an EFIN can take from 45 to 90 days so it is important to apply for your EFIN early. To begin the application process, see IRS – Become an Authorized E-File Provider.
