Delete wrong HST filing?

I messed up the date on my first HST filing in Quick Books Pro. Quick Books thinks that I filed and wont let me file under the proper date. How do I delete the old HST return so I can I can file the proper one? (The original return did not register with the CRA)

Go to your company list, then under that list, you can select make journal entries.  From there, you can sort through only the journal entries for the one that records the filing of the HST return and void it.  You will then be able to go in and file correctly.

I wish I could understand your instructions but can you clarify where I can find "Company list"? Under the "Company" tab there isn't a "list" tab to click on. Sorry to have to be walked through this...

When I did this a voided the return it would not let me refile the tax period.

Try to clear your cache - sometimes the cache will still read that the return can not be refiled.

Go to your Vendor List and find your Tax Vendor.  Enable the View Transactions on the right side of the vendor window.  All your tax filings (which are General Journal Entries) will be in there.  You can delete the offending one and re-file.
