Drake offers two versions for preparing 1040 returns online: Drake Zero is for standalone sites and Web1040 is for multi-sites (20 or more physical locations). Other than the features specifically related to managing multiple sites, all other features are the same.


Drake Zero and Web1040 are web apps, so all you need is Internet access and a recent version of your browser. What this means for you:

  • Zero install, zero updates, and zero backups – No more software expenses or maintenance chores.
  • Access from anywhere. Take your laptop and work anywhere you have Internet access: office, home, coffee shop, client’s location …
  • Mobile friendly, so it also works on your tablet or phone.
  • All-inclusive – Each return includes as many state returns as you need, as well as e-filing, printing, and long-term online storage.
  • Powerful reports let you always know what’s going on with your customers and your practice. Keep track of which returns are ready to e-file, which have been accepted, which need follow-up, your fees, and more.

Pricing & Signup

Drake Zero pricing is an affordable, flexible way for standalone tax offices to buy returns.

Returns are based on the taxpayer, not the tax form. One return can include federal and state return(s), as well as extensions, for one taxpayer or joint return.

  • Bank products are available, so you can offer multiple refund options. Customers can choose from prepaid Visa card, direct deposit or a check printed in your office, and you can get your fees deposited the same day.
  • Affordable, flexible pricing lets you buy as many returns as you’re comfortable with. No need to buy a lot of returns you may never need. Buy as many or as few as you need, when you need them.
  • Free conversions of prior-year returns. Then, when you create a new return with a prior-year SSN, you can pull forward W-2s, dependents, and other reusable data, saving you valuable time.
  • Your client returns are always secure. All your transmissions and communications with us are secured with industry-standard encryption, and your returns are backed up for safekeeping.
