Hello there, @fw18.
You'll want to subscribe to your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account to retrieve your data and then cancel your account once done. This way, you don't have to pay the monthly subscription of your QBO.
For more details, here's an article you can check: How to resubscribe or reactivate QuickBooks Online.
Once you've retrieved your QBO data, you can now cancel your QBO account anytime.
Should you want to learn some tips on managing your QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) account, check our Help articles page for reference.
