Hello, @tah-difinitigrou.


Yes, we can remove these deductions from your employee's record.


If you're referring to the deductions for just a single employee, you can remove them by going clicking on the trash icon from the employee's information. On the other hand, if these deductions are for all of your employees, you can delete them from the Preferences window.


Here's how to remove a deduction from the employee's profile:


  1. From the Employee details, click on the pencil icon beside the Pay button.
  2. Look for the deduction/s you want to delete from the number 4 section.
  3. Select Yes to confirm the action.


To delete the deductions from the Preferences:


  1. Tap on Payroll settings from the Gear icon.
  2. Go to the Deductions column, then look for the deduction you want to delete, then click on the Edit link.
  3. Choose Delete.

These articles also share some information on how to manage employees and add or edit a deduction or contribution. You can read the details from here as your additional references:


Also, feel free to skim through the topics from our QBO help articles as your guides while working with QuickBooks in the future.


Post again if you have any other questions. I'm a few clicks away to help. Keep safe always, @tah-difinitigrou!
