Re: How can you eliminate or edit a sales tax payment made by the system?

Hello there, mgop2203.

 

Let me share some insight on how to handle sales tax payments in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

 

Once you process a sales tax payment, you can no longer edit or delete it. What you can do is to make a sales tax adjustment in QBO through the Make Adjustment  option. 

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to Taxes.
  2. Click Sales Tax.
  3. Click the View button next to the tax you need to adjust. 
  4. Click Add an adjustment.
  5. Then, click the reason for adjustment, the adjustment account and add the amount of the adjustment.
  6. Click Add at the bottom.

I've got you an article to learn more about managing sales tax payments in QuickBooks Online (QBO): Set up and use Automated Sales Tax.

 

If you're using the manual sales tax setup, you can refer to this article: Manage sales tax payments.

 

I'm just a post away so please don't hesitate to reach back to me if you have further questions about this.
