Good day, @Lennyplus4.
Thanks for dropping by the Community. I’m here to make sure you’re able to gather the total mileage for the prior year on your account.
You can track mileage to both QuickBooks Online and Self-Employed. However, you'll need to manually do this in QBO by setting up an employee as a vendor, creating an expense account, Product/Service item and entering bills. Here’s an article for reference: How to track mileage.
While in QBSE, the system uses your location to track your trips automatically. Check out this article for more information: Automatic mileage tracking in the mobile app.
To get the total mileage for the prior year, go to the Miles tab. Here’s how:
1. Go to Miles in the left navigation.
2. In the Miles tab, click the Date drop-down and select the appropriate yearly options.
That should do it. Reach out to me if you need more help getting a mileage report in QBSE, I’ll be more than happy to help. Thanks for reaching out and take care!
Struggling to find a summary report of my mileage for 2018 for tax purposes. I reviewed your previous answer, but on my version of QBSE, I do not have a tab for Miles. I have a tab for Trips, but that just gives me a detailed summary of all of my trips for 2018. Is there no way to pull a summary report for 2018 that shows total miles business, total miles personal? I really hope there is, because that's the whole reason I signed up in order to receive this year-end type of reporting....many thanks for your assistance!
Good day, @Alpaca.
I want to provide you with details on how to generate mileage reports in QuickBooks Self-Employed.
To start with, QuickBooks Self-Employed only have 3 available types of reports:
However, you need not to worry, you can still download a copy of your tracked mileage as a CSV file.
That should do it! Just change the type of tracked mileage Business to Personal. This will allow you to download a complete list of your tracked mileage for 2018.
Should you have other questions about generating mileage reports, please don’t hesitate to visit us here in the Community. I’m always here to help.
How do you get the summary of the total amount of mileage for the year?
I have the report of all trips, but I can't see how to print the total amount and the amount I can deduct, like at the top of page on miles where it says total...my report just has each trip not the total.
You're on the right track, CEGS.
All that's left to do is download the Miles report to Excel. The file provides the list of mileage deductions. From there, you can manually calculate the total.
Let me show you how:
I'm adding these articles to help run reports needed at the end of the year:
