Important Notice

When you follow this step to delete your old Google AdSense account, you should equally follow it to delete the existing Google AdSense that you recently applied for.

Yes, the both accounts or more has to go, following this same process. When you have deleted all your AdSense accounts, don’t rush into creating a new one, not even with fake IDs because your information is still in googles database.

It normally takes about 2 months for all your data to be gone from googles database, so you should give it some time before applying for another AdSense account, probably 2 months from the date you deleted the last Google AdSense account.

This is the mistake that most people make, once they delete their existing AdSense account, the instantly dive into the creation of another AdSense account. If you do that, you would definitely get the same old result.
