TaxDome is an all-in-one practice management platform for tax and accounting firms. An important part of our product suite are unlimited legally binding e-signatures with KBA. Because we offer e-signatures, we are often asked ‘How does TaxDome compare with Adobe Sign?’

I utilized three tools just for signatures: Adobe e-sign to send out contracts, a separate tool for KBA signatures and then would upload the signed documents to a third tool. Having TaxDome for my clients has been fantastic — they love it.
TaxDome Lite $300 subscription + $300 for 300 KBA envelopes = $600 per year.
Adobe Sign $480 per license per year + $900 for 300 KBA envelopes = $1,380 per year.
Adobe Sign is a part of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, offering a way to manage e-signatures.
Adobe Sign requires users to use Acrobat Pro (or another external program) to create and store documents, making document and e-signatures management far more complicated and time-consuming than it needs to be.
If you plan to use it in your practice there is only one problem — running a tax or accounting practice takes a lot more than just managing PDFs and e-signing documents. Adobe Sign simply doesn’t do the other 95%. For that, you will need a number of other tools to run the practice — a workflow system, website, billing and payments, secure messaging, shared inbox, mass mail, and so on. All these things are not optional — you have to perform these functions. The only question is whether you’ll be using one tool or 20.
TaxDome was built from the ground up to be the one system you use to run your practice. It includes all these features in one package, with information seamlessly integrated across all business functions.
Adobe Sign can be thought of as a great flat head screwdriver while TaxDome is a professional screwdriver set.
TaxDome has 2 price plans — TaxDome Lite for solo proprietors, $25 per month that includes a client portal, secure document storage, e-signatures; and TaxDome Pro — $50 per month per user that includes all of the Lite features plus automation, website hosting and more.
On either plan, TaxDome offers unlimited e-signatures with KBA $1 per verification.
Adobe Sign is available as a part of Adobe Pro pricing plans — for individuals, businesses and enterprises, with a set of features changing from plan to plan — the more features you need, the higher the price. KBA is available with an Adobe Sign Business license. The cost for an Adobe Sign Business license is $480 per license per year and an additional $3 per KBA.
