What Is MileIQ?
MileIQ is a popular mileage tracking app that was acquired by Microsoft in 2015. The app runs in the background to automatically log each of your drives and then calculates the value (at $0.535/mile) to properly account for your business mileage for reimbursement or tax purposes. Within the app you’re allowed to add your vehicles, purposes and locations, as well as customize features that help personalize each drive.
MileIQ integrates with Office365, however it does not track business expenses or sync with your bank account (Everlance does!).
How Does MileIQ Work?
Automatic Mileage Tracking: Mileage is tracked automatically in the background on each drive. When you’re finished with each drive a notice will display on the screen with an estimated deductible/reimbursement value prompting you to classify the trip as either business or personal.
How To Track Mileage: Mileage is tracked automatically through your phones GPS. At the end of each ride you’ll be asked to swipe to classify the trip. Swipe left for personal, and right for business. You also have the ability to “bulk classify” your drives. Unfortunately, you will not have the ability to manually add mileage from previous trips in the app (You can with Everlance!)
Mileage Reimbursement: MileIQ works with the IRS’s Standard Business, Medical & Moving Mileage Rates and relies on your classification of each trip to accurately calculate the value, as rates will vary.
MileIQ Dashboard: Once you login on your desktop, laptop or tablet you’ll be presented with the Dashboard where you can classify, edit & review all of your drives. Each drive will be presented in a snapshot that allows you to see drive data in more detail.
How can I Use MileIQ for Business Reimbursements and Taxes?
MileIQ provides users with their mileage reports. Choose between Excel or PDF formats that can be used to send to your CPA / bookkeeper for tax deductions or manager for mileage reimbursements.

Is There A Promo Code Or A Coupon Code?
