Hey, jimth. Pleased to have you here in the Community. I'll need just a little bit more information about what you're trying to achieve. Which taxes are you trying to stop from coming out of a check, and why?
QuickBooks automatically calculates taxes for each one. A workaround I can recommend would be to manually override them on the check. Here's how:
1. Open the paycheck.
2. Go to Paycheck Detail to edit or delete amounts. This is where you can remove the taxes.
3. Select Ok, then click on Save & Close. A pop-up window will display asking you to confirm your changes, choose Yes.
