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.
