How do I change my Drake e-file password or address?

Change Password

You can edit your Drake e-file passwords by logging into the Drake Software Support Website and selecting Account > e-File Password > Edit

  • There are different e-file passwords and requirements depending on which year of Drake or CWU is being used:
    1. The e-file password for Drake Tax (2016 and later) and Drake Accounting must be a strong password containing 8-15 characters and at least 1 uppercase letter, 1 lowercase letter, 1 number, and 1 special character. 
    2. The e-file password for tax years 2012-2015 (including CWU16 and prior) must be 8-15 characters, in any combination of upper and lower case letters or numbers. 
    3. For Drake Software 2011 and prior, a 5-character password is needed. Contact Drake Support for more information.  
  • Remember to change your password in the tax software on the ERO screen located under the Setup menu when you make a change under Account > e-File Password. For Drake Accounting, make the change on Firm > Firm Information Setup
