Cannot delete sales tax adjustment

I've follow the instruction online for deleting a sales tax adjustment ( but they aren't correct. Once I run a report and see the sales tax adjustment that I've input, I'm not able to actually select that line item to delete it. When I see it in my register, I also cannot delete it from there - it gives me an error saying the system created this and it cannot be deleted. I tried to file just the adjustment and then delete the filing, but that didn't make it disappear either. I need help for how I can get rid of this manual adjustment permanently.
