You will have to downgrade your payroll subscription from Full Service. Automatic payments was what you signed up for.

I signed up for the minimum service allowed - electronic payments are included and opting out is ot an option. Any ideas on how these electronic tax payments may be stopped?

Hello there, @lax1.

 

You can stop and delete an electronic Federal tax payment two business days prior to the payment date. While States might take up to five business days since they have a different lead-time for processing tax payments.

 

Here's how to delete them:

 

  1. In your QuickBooks Online, click Taxes from the left menu and select Payroll Tax.
  2. Click View tax payments you have made from the Taxes section.1.PNG
  3. Select the date range, then choose the name of the tax payment.2.PNG
  4. Choose Delete from the drop-down.3.PNG
  5. Click Yes to confirm.

However, if the payments were already processed electronically, I'd recommend contacting our Payroll Support Team. This way, they can help you cancel the tax payment.

 

To reach them, you can follow the detailed steps provided by my colleague KlentB above.

 

You can also read this article to know more about deleting tax payments: Delete a tax payment.

 

Just in case you want to turn off e-pay for one payment, feel free to check out this article for more details: Pay payroll taxes electronically or manually.

 

Please let me know if you need clarification about this, or there's anything else I can do for you. I'll be standing by for your response. Have a great day.

not sure why but I do not have the options and drop downs I'm supposed to have under tax payments....

Allow me to chime in, @lax1.

 

If you don't have the option to select the drop-downs under tax payment, I suggest checking to make sure you're using an admin login. This will ensure you have access to make the changes to your tax payments. If you're logged in to an admin account, then you'll want to open the program in a private window. The program will then run without collecting browsing data. After you delete the payments, you'll want to clear your cache and cookies to ensure your web browser runs more smoothly.

 

Feel free to comment below if you have any other questions. I'm always here to help.

The payroll tax payments show up on my payroll tax center were messed up, periods are wrong, one of those payments I have paid in March, and it aromatically showed last week with a directly withdraw day of 4/14/2020. Have called for 3 times and talked to 3 representatives for couple hours, none of them could help me solve the problem. So  sad, too much headache and waste of time. Planning to unscripted.
