I am developing an events manager for Wordpress.

I have post_type = 'event' and taxonomy 'event_place'

And I want delete block with taxonomy select in post page, because user can do it at custom metabox.

Use remove_meta_box

remove_meta_box( 'categorydiv', 'post-type-name', 'side' ); 

And hook it to 'admin_menu' as in the Codex.

function my_remove_cat_box() {
     remove_meta_box( 'categorydiv', 'post-type-name', 'side' ); 
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'my_remove_meta_boxes' );

I am guessing a little at the first parameter--'categorydiv'--, but that is what it looks like based on your screen shot.

Thanks, a lot! remove_meta_box('{taxonomy_name}div', ....) is work good! – Ozerich Nov 23 '12 at 20:41
