Important Product Details and Account Setup Request

Please review these important product details to make sure Rightworks cloud hosting is right for you.

  • The Drake Tax software license must be purchased separately; the hosting fee does not include the annual software license fee. The base monthly hosting fee is $99 per user.
  • Each user subscription can only be accessed by one user at a time. For security and privacy purposes, it is recommended that tax offices assign only one tax preparer to each user subscription; this helps avoid sharing login credentials, which increases security and privacy risks.
  • Broadband internet connectivity with 1.5Mbps or better download speeds is required. As the number of simultaneous connections increases on the same broadband network within your office, higher bandwidth may be required to maintain optimal performance. Check your internet speed
  • HP-compatible laser printers are recommended for printing from the hosted applications.
  • TWAIN-compliant scanners are recommended for scanning documents.
  • Please review the Windows and Mac operating system requirements in this Drake Knowledge Base article.
  • A credit card must be provided for billing (automated monthly cycle). Please review the Billing Policy to understand our refund policy and your responsibilities for managing your subscriptions and payments. A web-based portal is provided to you for the purpose of managing your account.
  • Supported applications are Drake Tax, Drake Accounting and Drake Documents. Foxit PhantomPDF can be added for an additional fee, and you can bring your own Microsoft 365 license. You may also purchase other applications made available in the Rightworks ecosystem, which can be added to your cloud-hosted Drake subscription.
  • Please review the Rightworks Service Agreement and the Drake Terms and Conditions for Third Party Products and Services.

Additional details:
