New State Forms Added to Drake Tax

New State Forms Added to Drake Tax

Of all the factors that go into choosing tax software, one of the most important is support for state tax forms that apply to your clients. Drake Software is proud to announce the latest Drake Tax state form updates that will help tax professionals better serve clients in the 2023 filing season.

Note: Most of these forms are new and do not have public versions yet, so links redirect to informational pages rather than the forms themselves. Visit your state department of revenue page periodically for the latest tax forms and updates.
