Deactivating the AWS-Generated Cost Allocation Tag

Master account owners can deactivate the AWS generated tag in the Billing and Cost Management console. When a master account owner deactivates the tag it is also deactivated for all member accounts. After you deactivate the AWS generated tag, AWS no longer applies the tag to new resources. Previously tagged resources remain tagged.

To deactivate the AWS generated tag

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Billing and Cost Management console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/billing/home#/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Cost Allocation Tags.

  3. Under AWS-Generated Cost Allocation Tags, choose Deactivate.

It can take up to 24 hours for tags to deactivate.
