Forced to upgrade = Extortion?

Pros: costco's price
Cons: forced upgrade, qb does not allow sufficient user input
Model Number: QuickBooks Pro 2012 + Payroll
" I have been using QBP 2007 (wish I would not have upgraded from 2004) without support and would have continued except the state and federal government changed their payroll taxes and QB has locked the old numbers. It became too cumbersome to change/correct each paycheck. I have no problem figuring payroll manually, I did it before QB I can do it now (in fact QB makes payroll more complicated than necessary for S Corporations). But, QB does not allow access to adjust withholding percentages. I researched other products w/o the same issues and can take historical data but nothing is available yet, I will keep looking. The only reason I purchased the upgrade was b/c Costco's price was so low. I gave 2 stars b/c of the forced upgrade. "

Great Product - Horrible Upgrade policy!

Pros: costco bundle prize - life saver!, qb + payroll is still awesome!
Cons: 3-year product expiration date!, bad renewal policy
" No matter what bundles you buy or QB product you purcase - YOU HAVE TO UPGRADE every 3 years.. apparently it is a Fine Print in the EUL. The QB product will work by itself MINUS some features.. but the QB Payroll will absolutely STOP working every 3 years if you don't upgrade!..
I think it is a Disastrous policy.. Time to shop for a competitor with a better policy!

Great Product, Using for three years now

Pros: saves a lot of time
Cons: must renew payroll subscription every year
" This does everything I need to run and pay employees for my restaurant. Saves time and money getting my end of year taxes done (the only time I use an accountant). It is cheaper to buy this package then to renew the payroll by itself for my previous version. I also get the lastest software for free. "
