Delete sales tax rates

SOLVEDby QuickBooks2Updated September 06, 2023

Currently, there is no way to delete a tax rate in QuickBooks Online. If you no longer need or use them, you can deactivate the tax rate.

Note:If you don't see the settings below, you may be using Auto Sales Tax feature. See Set up and use Automated Sales Tax for more information.

Deactivate a tax rate

Important: You CANNOT reactivate a tax rate. If you need it for future use, you’ll have to create a new one.

  1. Go to Taxes and select VAT (Take me there).
  2. Select Edit VAT, then select Edit rates.
  3. Find the tax rate you want to deactivate, then switch it from On to Off.
  4. Select Yes.

To reactivate the tax code, select the gear icon above the Action tab and mark Include inactive to show all deactivated tax codes. Pick the tax code you want to reactivate, then switch it to On.
