Hello there, @mlfin1.
I'm glad you've reached out to the QuickBooks Community. Let me help share some information about the automated sales tax in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Once you've activated the sales tax feature, you can no longer turn it off. What you can do is, remove the sales tax on your customer's tax info to ensure there are no taxes to be collected.
The tax rate will no longer apply once you create transactions to your customers.
For additional reference, you can check this article: Sales tax in QuickBooks Online.

Here are the steps:
