Mileage tracking is built into the QuickBooks Self-Employed mobile app.

Built-in mileage tracker
You don’t have to track your mileage manually anymore (although you can, if you really like typing). The QuickBooks Self-Employed mobile app uses your phone’s GPS to track mileage for you. We automatically detect your starting and stopping locations when you’re driving and record the miles. Think of it as a hands-free digital mileage log.

Swipe left for business miles
After you finish driving (whether for a rideshare company or to a client meeting), you need to identify business miles versus miles used for a personal errand. Swipe right on the trip to categorize it as a personal trip, and swipe left to put it in a business mileage category. This ensures that miles for business trips are tracked for tax time.

Start using the mileage tracking app
It’s easy to get started tracking mileage. First, get the QuickBooks Self-Employed mobile app in the App Store or from Google Play. Then, log into the app using your QuickBooks login information. Next, open the app and tap the Miles tab at the bottom of your screen (iOS) or tap Miles from the menu (Android). Switch the toggle to turn on automatic mileage tracking. Make sure you also enable location services in your device’s settings. That’s it. When you start driving, we’ll start tracking miles.

Take every tax deduction you deserve.

Claim the mileage deduction
The self-employed can take advantage of many business-related tax deductions, including the mileage deduction. And for many, such as rideshare drivers and delivery service providers, mileage is one of the largest tax deductions they claim. With the QuickBooks Self-Employed app, you can track mileage automatically to get the biggest tax deduction you deserve.

Use a digital mileage log
The QuickBooks Self-Employed app acts as a digital mileage log, tracking and logging the miles you drive for business. When tax time comes, you have your business mileage information properly documented in order to take the mileage deduction on your tax forms.

IRS compliance for the self-employed and independent contractors
Whether you’re driving part-time for Uber, full-time as a truck driver, or occasionally making deliveries on weekends, it’s important to track mileage. Stay IRS compliant by using a mileage log that includes the date, the destination, the reason for the trip, odometer readings, and total mileage. The QuickBooks Self-Employed app includes a digital mileage log and tracks these items for you, automatically.
