Online Reports

Can I run reports to get information about the status of returns and other e-file data online? 


Yes, you can get information about the status of electronically filed returns in real-time online. You can run reports on returns, checks and fees, or search for electronic filing information for a single SSN or EIN. To do so, log in to the Drake Support website with your User Account credentials. Expand the Reports menu, and choose from the available reports. Filters and other settings/options vary for the report selected.
