Hey @jlg! I hope it's not too late getting back to you, but maybe you've got the mileage tracker enabled and you're all set. But if you're still looking for help, here's all that you need to do: 


  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Self-Employed app on your iPhone or Android
  2. Go to the Mileage tab 
  3. Turn on Automatic Mileage Tracking
  4. Check that your phone's settings are enabled properly - 
    1. For iPhones -
    2. For Androids -

Let me know how it all goes for you! I'm always here to help :)

How to Use Self-Employed mileage Tracker

I have IQ mileage app on my phone but my QB app is on my tablet so how can I put my mileage manually.


How to Use Self-Employed mileage Tracker

Hi there, Jjjg58.


You'll need to export your miles from the MileIQ account and import them into QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE). Let me show you how.


Download a copy of your trips in CSV file from MileIQ and make sure that the Vehicle info tab under Miles page is completely filled out. Then, follow these steps to import into QBSE:

  1. Go to Miles.
  2. Select Import MileIQ trips in the Add trip drop down.
  3. Click on Browse and locate the file.
  4. Choose Open.
  5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

For further assistance in mapping and formatting the CSV file, our QBSE Support Team would be happy to assist you. 


Here's how to contact them:

  1. Sign in to your QBSE account.
  2. Click on Contact us.
  3. Enter your concern and choose Continue.
  4. Select Start a chat.

If you want QBSE to automatically track your mileage, refer to this article: Automatic mileage tracking in the mobile app.


This should point you in the right direction. Let me know if you have any questions. I'll get them answered. Have a great day.
