Void or Delete an Invoice

Here's how to void or delete an invoice in AvaTax for QuickBooks Desktop. To remove an invoice from your records, including AvaTax records, you can either void or delete an invoice and ensure that the tax calculations and totals reflect the removal correctly. AvaTax maintains a history of each transactionHoverTT.png for audit purposes. Deleting a transaction would invalidate this history. Void a transaction instead of deleting it.
