Removing sales tax rates

Learn how to make a sales tax rate inactive.

Making a sales tax rate inactive removes it from your QuickBooks Online interface. However, to preserve data integrity you can't delete it completely. In this article, we'll show you how to remove a sales tax rate.

Remove a sales tax rate

  1. Select Taxes from the left menu.
  2. Select Edit VAT or Edit GST, then choose Edit Rates.
  3. Find the tax rate you want to deactivate, then switch it from On to Off.
  4. Select Yes.

To reactivate the tax code, select the gear icon above the Action tab and mark Include Inactive to show all deactivated tax codes. Pick the tax code you want to reactivate, then switch it to On.
