Did You Know DrakePortals® Has a Mobile App?

In 2022, email inboxes are inundated with phishing scams. For most people, one wrong click can result in a stolen identity or lost access to important files. Considering tax offices routinely serve hundreds (or even thousands) of clients every year, finding a convenient, secure platform for remotely exchanging tax documents can be a game changer.

DrakePortals provides tax professionals a Drake Tax®-integrated, SecureFilePro.com-subdomain website for exchanging tax documents, communicating with clients, collecting signatures and payments, and more. While tax clients have always been able to access the web-based client portal from a browser, they can now download the SecureFilePro® mobile app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

  • Exchange documents (no file-size limit for attachments!)
  • Sign forms (requires the separate purchase of e-signature events)
  • Make payments

Clients can also change account information—including email, password, and multi-factor authentication status—at any time.

How do tax clients log in to the SecureFilePro mobile app?

Tax clients log in with the credentials they chose during account creation.

Whether designing superheroes, penciling caricatures, or just doodling, I always knew I was going to earn some sort of art degree while in college. That was my goal before I decided to trade Edgar Degas for Edgar Allan Poe during a Freshman English class. The BA in English soon morphed into a double-major in English and Philosophy, eventually becoming an MA in English. It only makes sense that I learned of a writing opportunity for a local marketing firm while teaching a first-year college English course. Before I knew it, I was writing and editing tax-related articles for Taxing Subjects, and this has been my home since 2014.
