I forget: can I buy the physical copy for the key, then download the installer from Ufile's website? I don't have an optical drive on my current system...

That is correct, I did this. The key is specifically for return counts.

Do you need a new version each year that you file taxes?

Why not use free service like Simple Tax? I feel like I'm missing something here??

I believe the difference is online stores your information but if you buy a copy it stores it on your local machine. It's a privacy thing.

Storing something on the cloud is rarely as safe as storing it locally.

Definitely agreed and I am not much of a fan of these clouds, but it does have it's pros and cons.

In the cloud, your data should in theory be available next year when you want to compare or any other time depending on retention policies. Downside, it is out in the cloud, so if company gets hacked, your data can be compromised.
Locally, you data is private in most cases (assuming you don't have any trojan/virus/spyware) :) Downside, if like MOST people, you don't back up the data on your PC, the day your hard drive crashes (not "IF", but "When"), you can kiss your data goodbye in most cases.

If you backup your personal files regularly, then you should have no problem.. If you want to back your data to the cloud, you should at least encrypt your data. Easiest way is to use something like 7zip (which is free) and create and encrypted archive of your files, with strong password. And then backup the archive to the cloud. Keep in mind, that having a single copy of your data on an external USB drive is NOT a backup. The external drives will fail also.. The point is to have more than one copy, on 2 different forms of media.
