e-Filing

Drake Accounting®: Where are the W2, W3, 1098, 1099 and other e-file forms saved when using Hosting on Right Networks?  

 

Uploading from Right Networks Browser

Hosting on Right Networks saves e-file forms by default on the I:\ inside the Hosting on Right Networks Desktop. A web browser is available on your Right Networks Desktop, so you are able to log in to the IRS or state DOR website from that browser and upload forms directly from your Right Networks I:\.

  1. Log in to your Right Networks Desktop. 
  2. Launch the web browser available on Right Networks and navigate to the IRS or state DOR website. 
  3. When prompted on the website to upload, browse to the saved file located on the Right Networks Desktop (I:).
    • For a federal form, you will need to browse to I:\DrakeAccounting20YY\Clients\CLIENTCODE\EFile\Federal 
    • For a state form, you will browse to I:\DrakeAccounting20YY\Clients\CLIENTCODE\EFile\ST
      • Note: YY is the year of DAS, CLIENTCODE is the name of the client, and ST is the state abbreviation (i.e. NC for North Carolina). 
    • The exact location can be viewed by going to DAS on your Right Networks Desktop and selecting e-Filings > Manage e-Files > Open Location.
  4. Complete the upload depending on the IRS or DOR website instructions. 

If you prefer to upload files from your local computer to your local web browser, you must move the forms from your Right Networks Desktop down to your local computer (see steps below). 

Uploading from Local Browser

When you are uploading Forms to the IRS and other state DORs from your local browser, you cannot choose the virtual (Hosted) location as the save location. Forms must be saved locally on your machine in order to allow them to be selected for the upload. Hosting on Right Networks saves e-file forms by default on the I:\ inside the Hosting on Right Networks Desktop. To move the files to your local computer, follow these steps:

  1. From your local computer (not within Right Networks), open your web browser and navigate to https://filemanager.rightnetworks.com/.
  2. Enter your Right Networks credentials and click Log On.
  3. Browse to the file(s) on the Right Networks Desktop (I:).
    • For a federal form, you will need to browse to I:\DrakeAccounting20YY\Clients\CLIENTCODE\EFile\Federal 
    • For a state form, you will browse to I:\DrakeAccounting20YY\Clients\CLIENTCODE\EFile\ST
      • Note: YY is the year of DAS, CLIENTCODE is the name of the client, and ST is the state abbreviation (i.e. NC for North Carolina). 
    • The exact location can be viewed by going to DAS on your Right Networks Desktop and selecting e-Filings > Manage e-Files > Open Location.
  4. Select the file(s) that need to be downloaded.
    • CTRL + Click allows you to select multiple files at once. 
  5. Click the Download icon. 
  6. The files are downloaded to your local computer. If you do not have a default save location for downloads, you may be prompted for a save location.
  7. On the IRS or state DOR websites you can now browse to that location, select the file(s), and upload them successfully.
