In newly released surveys by the Journal of Accountancy (JOA) and National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP), users gave Drake Software high scores across multiple categories and ranked Drake among the best tax software options. For the results, respondents most commonly used a five-point scale to review their current software. Drake ranked particularly well in Updates/Installation, Compatibility/Reliability, and Most Recommended to a New Practice – areas of great importance to tax professionals.
