Pay Per Return Software Cannot Create New Test Returns

PPR “free” practice returns are restricted to test returns provided in the software.

In the Pay Per Return (PPR) version of the software, a practice or test return cannot be created by entering a random 40000XXXX or 50000XXXX series number. PPR test returns are restricted to the test return numbers supplied in the software.

Note: Drake Tax includes e-filing practice returns. See Related Links below for a list of test returns available to PPR users.

For practice data entry, PPR users can change the name of individual test returns.
