Drake Software 2021 Contactless Tax Preparation Infographic

Video conferencing isn’t exactly a new development—having at least been around since the 1970s—but availability is not the same as widespread adoption. Given the preference for face-to-face meetings in business, it would require a pretty monumental sea change before video conferencing became the norm.

Then we had a pandemic.

Since preparing tax returns at minimum requires exchanging and signing documents, many tax professionals had to develop a comprehensive contactless service plan involving more than video conferencing. Whether relying on drop boxes and physical mail or specialized software, it was clear that solutions would be different from office to office.

Drake Software surveyed more than 3,800 tax professionals from across the country to learn how they chose to offer contactless tax preparation services—and whether they would continue to do so post-pandemic. Download the 2021 Contactless Tax Preparation Infographic to see the results.

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.
