Hi jatkins, 

 

You can remove the tax payment you made in QuickBooks Online (QBO). Here's how: 

  1. Click Taxes., select Payroll tax.
  2. Click View tax payments you have made under Taxes.
  3. Select the name of the tax payment. 
  4. From the drop-down, select Delete.
  5. Click Yes to confirm deletion.

Once done, you can check this article to reprocess the payment: Make Payroll Tax Payments.

 

If you want to match the payment with your bank transactions, here's an article for your reference: Fix Mismatched or Miscategorized Bank transactions.

Thanks!  Is there a way for me to tell if the IRS actually got a payment?   If I try to delete a tax payment in QB that has actually been transmitted, will I get an error message?

Let me provide answers to these concerns, @jatkins.

 

If you have manually record these tax payments in QuickBooks, there is no option for us to know if IRS actually got this payment. It would be best to reach them out to check if they receive the payments.

 

However, if you paid it electronically, you can check its e-payments status if the agency already receives the payment. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Taxes menu and select Payroll Tax.
  2. Click View tax payments you have made under Taxes.
  3. Change the date range if necessary. Then review the Payment Date.

 

For your second concern, you can only delete a form if it is still in the Not Transmitted status. Therefore, the option to delete it will no longer be available.

 

If you have further questions, you can also check out this article: Check e-filing or e-payment status. This will provide you answers to some of the frequently asked questions about e-payment status in QuickBooks Online.
