How can you cancel or change a scheduled tax payment?

I'd be glad to help you stop the tax payment in QBO, powellswholesale.

 

Please know that you can only delete it if transaction hasn't been processed yet. Processing of payments will be done two business days prior to the payment date, before 5 pm PST for Federal taxes.

 

States taxes on the other hand have different lead times for processing tax payments. Others may take up to five business days. If the lead time for your state is five business days, make sure to delete the payment five business days prior to the payment date, before 5 pm PST.

 

Here's how you can delete it to cancel the payment:

 

  1. Go to the Taxes menu, then proceed to Payroll tax.
  2. Under Tax resources, select Tax payment history.
  3. Select the name of the tax payment. Change the date range if necessary.
  4. From the drop-down list for View and Print Form, select Delete. If you don't see delete, it means the payment is already processed. 
  5. Click Yes to confirm that you want to delete it.

 

After that, you can now resubmit it with the correct details or amount. 

 

Additional guidance and references about tax payments are also discussed here:

 

 

Feel free to tag me if you have follow-up questions. I'd be glad to jump right back and offer my help one more time.

It's a pleasure to have you in the Community forum, @mrwheels11. Thank you for joining the thread.

 

You can adjust your tax payments if you haven't yet made any tax payments for the current quarter and may change it to a different quarter or year. Here's how:

 

  1. Click the Gear icon at the top, then select Payroll Settings.
  2. Click the Pencil icon next to the federal or state you need to update.
  3. Select Edit from How often do you pay your taxes? 
  4. Choose your new schedule and effective date, then click Save.

 

Furthermore, if you need to amend your schedule for a previous quarter, have already paid tax payments in the current quarter, or want to delete your scheduled tax payment, I recommend contacting our Payroll Support Team. They'll access your account in a secure area and assist you with this.
