Pronto Tax School & Drake Tax Software Team Up

To Bring You this Exclusive, "All-in-One" Tax Software + Training + Support Package Designed to Minimize Your Costs and Maximize Your Profits.

After working with 20,000+ tax pros, while also running our own "scrappy underdog" independent tax business, we've identified three main challenges that independent tax pros are facing right now:

  • 1)  ​Difficulty in consistently, reliably acquiring new clients.

  • 2)  Unacceptable cost structures!  For newer tax pros, or if you're doing it part-time, the tools you need eat up too much of your limited income.   Meanwhile, those of us who do grow end up paying out the nose as we grow (profit margins often decline even as we add more top-line revenue ... NOT FUN!)

  • 3)  Lack of support from trusted friends and colleagues, a.k.a. "I'm All Alone on Tax Preparer Island ... Again."

  • Guess what?  Our exclusive all-in-one (1040, 1120, 1120S, and 1041) tax software + training + support package helps you solve all three of these notorious pain points that have afflicted independent tax professionals for so many years!

What Are Members Saying About this Package?

We've used [this software] since opening in 2010.  I've always been impressed with their customer support.  We love using their integrated GruntWorx® system to pre-populate 1040s.  It makes that type of work much more efficient.

Does Pronto have control of my clients if I buy software through Pronto?

In order to get this special deal for you, we are set up with the software supplier in a way where your software is associated with Pronto as  "Master EFIN holder."  We do not view your client database, require you to work with any particular bank, or do anything else to exert control over your business.  Nor do we charge any fees beyond the software purchase price.  We will always do everything we can to act in your best interests and keep you always free to do whatever you choose with your own business.  We have plenty of our own tax clients and would NEVER try to take yours or harm you or your clients in any way.  If you have further questions about how a Master EFIN works when buying software, just let us know!

Does the software include corporate, partnership, and estate / trust tax return forms as well as individual?

Is this offer valid regardless of where I live?

This offer is not valid in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, and Nebraska, due to a pre-existing business relationship that Drake has with another partner.  Out of respect for their pre-existing relationship, please don't buy this software package if you live in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, or Nebraska.  Thank you!

Are there any other charges I should be aware of before I purchase?

If you use bank products (when a client pays your fee out of the tax refund), you have to pay charges to the bank that handles the transaction, the software company, and the service bureau.


These charges may vary depending on how many bank products you process, but average cost is about $90 per bank product. 


These charges are standard in the industry anytime you use bank products and are very competitive to the bank product pricing offered by other software providers. 


You are under no obligation to offer bank products. 


There are no charges for regular e-filed tax returns.

Do you have a money back guarantee on this software?
