Hi there, and thank you for contacting us about taking away the tax rate when making a bank deposit, user70795.
You're unable to track tax on accounts of types Accounts Receivable on the Banking page.

I want to stop this from happening to you. I have other troubleshooting steps that will certainly exclude the tax rate in QuickBooks Online.
Yes, we can exclude tax on the Match page by selecting a tax rate of 0%. Choosing 0% does not calculate any tax amount. Doing this eliminates the tax, and you can save the transactions seamlessly.
If you don't have a 0% rate, I'd recommend creating a custom tax rate specific for these transactions. For the complete steps, check out this link: Create custom tax rate.

Thanks for the help! I have already done so, but to no avail. It still doesn't allow me to properly add cash flow from the client. Is it possible to turn off the tax center? Logically, if you can add a tax rate, you can turn it off completely.
I appreciate all the efforts you've exerted to resolve your issue, @Mariana4.
I want to make sure this issue is taken care of, and I'd like to redirect you to the best support group available to get this address right away.
The option to turn off the tax center isn't possible. You'll have to set the Default tax rate to Out of scope to ensure the taxes won't calculate. However, since it doesn't work, I recommend reaching out to our QuickBooks Support Team. This way, they can further check on this matter and help you remove the tax field on the banking page or when creating a deposit. Here's how to reach them:
