How to delete sales tax rates and agencies? How to inactive account "Tax" in chart of account and column tax in Journal Entry.

Hello sunisa.si,

Learn how to make a sales tax rate and agencies delete/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. 

Here's how:

  1.     In the Tax Centre, click Edit Tax.
  2.     Select Edit Rates.
  3.     Choose the Tax you want to delete/inactive.
  4.     Under column, choose Edit.
  5.     Click Make Inactive.

Then making inactive accounts in the chart of accounts, this will not delete the transaction created in this account. You'll have to delete the transaction if necessary.

How to inactive an account:

  1. Under the Chart of accounts list, select Account history of the account.
  2. Click make inactive.
Also, column tax in the journal entry, this is a default column, but you have an option to not choose a tax or leave it blank, as long as the accounts selected are correct.
