Welcome to the Community, laurie3115.

I can help you delete or edit the sales tax payment. To do so, you will need to go to your Chart of Accounts:

  1. Click Lists.
  2. Choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Click the account used.
  4. Click Ctrl and D (at the same time) on your keyboard to have the Delete Transaction window and then click OK (see the first screenshot).
  5. Or, you can double-click the transaction, then click the Delete icon (see the second screenshot).

If you only want to just edit the date of the transaction, you can update the date and click Save & Close. I've added some screenshots for your guide.

There you go, laurie3115. Keep me posted if there's anything else I can do to help. Have a good one.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
