    Hi @Michael Morrissey ,

    You could open the next url. If you find any subscriptions, just cancel it. Probably, it takes 48-72 hours when the changes are showing in Azure.


    More information.

    @Michael Morrissey
    Thank you for your post and I apologize for the delayed response!

    When it comes to deleting your tenant and running into the Delete all license-based subscriptions error, can you make sure you don't have any subscriptions within your Azure Portal or Microsoft 365 portal.

    Microsoft 365 - https://admin.microsoft.com/Adminportal/Home#/subscriptions
    Azure Portal - https://portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_Azure_Billing/SubscriptionsBlade


    If you don't have any active subscriptions and are still having issues deleting your tenant, I'd recommend creating a support request with our Subscriptions Management team similar to the below.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
