How to remove a tax in PrestaShop 1.5

In the three previous articles, we taught you to create, modify and disable a tax. This article will teach you to remove a tax in your PrestaShop 1.5 store. You can use this feature if a tax is no longer in existence or if you simply no longer wish to service locations that use that tax. Deleting a tax means it will no longer display in the various tax selection dropdowns within the program.

Note that this deletes all information for the tax, so if you need to add it again later, it will need to be created from scratch. Follow along in the steps below as we show you how to delete a tax in PrestaShop 1.5.
