Your post includes a link discussing tax filing software (Turbotax), whereas this thread is about accounting software (Quickbooks).
Two totally different products, and the context is also different. It is not that the government wants to do your accounting/bookkeeping for free, and Intuit is lobbying against it.

The same thing happened to me in 2014. I had bought the boxed CD from Staples, then it came on sale much cheaper online. I returned the boxed product, and then I purchased the cheaper digital download. I did not need to uninstall/reinstall: just changed the license number and re-registered Quickbooks 2014. I am not sure if the same can be done with Quickbooks 2016.

if you want payroll tax tables every year, you need pay every year.

Only if you need payroll.
Otherwise, solely for accounting purpose, plenty of people are still using 10-year old versions of Quickbooks.
Although, Intuit only provides support (security patches, etc.) for the most recent three editions (2014 onward).

Has anyone converted to quickbooks online? I like the idea - but don't like the fact that there's no way to go back to quickbooks desktop.

PROS

ONLINE 1) no software installation, only browser required
2) can be used from any computer or tablet which has internet access
3) user friendly
4) no backing up required, backed up automatically online
5) accountants can easily access it online once invited, no need for sending files, creating accountants copy etc

DESKTOP 1) user friendly
2) very flexible
3) many reporting options
4) suitable for most businesses from small to medium, even with complex inventory

CONS

ONLINE 1) Fairly new product stll with issues to be worked out
2) Needs internet access
3) Security issues related to online use, data file stored in the cloud
4) Slower processing time and refresh time. In comparison to desktop version
the speed of the processing is limited not only to the used computer, but also to the speed
of the internet connection, and the speed of QB server. If any link is broker the data file can't be worked on.
5) Report option is limited in comparison to desktop version, but sufficient for most.
6) Not suitable for clients with complex inventory.
7) Only one report can be opened at the time, which means that to see any previous reports you need to access them
as oppose to click escape, takes much longer.
8) Mandatory monthly subscription even for clients not requiring payroll or updates.

DESKTOP 1) Not online, cons limited mostly to being desktop software.
2) Can only be used from computer with software installed
3) Compatibility issues from one version to another (mostly for accountants)
4) For accountants access via file sent to them.

In for the premier copy. What a deal! Thanks OP. Missed out on the $300 staples deal a couple months ago but this is way better. My accountant advised against the online version if you're running a business with any slightly complicated transactions going on.

There's normally a deal on Quickbooks around this time of year, at least 50% off, but 70% is an especially good deal if you need to update. Even if you don't do online payroll, Quickbooks has a half-life of about 5 years due to support issues and growing incompatibilities.
