QB Issue Resolution:

You shouldn’t be getting 2 prices for one payroll subscription, you need to call Intuit about this.

Every year that you renew it will be quite a bit more, esp. as Intuit has gone to the base price plus $2 per employee per pay period.  Some people purchase a QB license plus one-year payroll subscription every year, cancel their previous subscription and activate the new one.  You get a free upgrade of your QB version and a cheaper price in the long run.  I just saw a post yesterday by an Intuit employee stating that this is done regularly.
