How can I setup my home address on mileage tracker?

Mileage tracker always has my home address wrong. It logs as an address 1/4 mile away. Everything else is accurate. How do I setup my home address?


Hello there, rclk,

There isn't a need to set up your home address once you turn-on the mileage tracking feature. This automatically detects your starting and stopping locations once you take a trip. Let's perform the suggested fixes so you'll have your starting address accurate.

If you're using the latest version of your phone, I'd suggest clearing your app data to remove all unnecessary information and to start fresh when using the app.

  • Android - Go to your phone's settings, select Apps, then locate the QuickBooks Self-Employed app. Select Storage, then click clear data.
  • iOS - Go to your phone's settings, select Settings then General, and click iPhone Storage. Locate the QuickBooks Self-Employed app. To free up the storage without deleting the documents and data, select Offload App.

Once completed, let's apply this suggested troubleshooting steps using an Android phone:

  1. Log into your QuickBooks Self-Employed account via the mobile app.
  2. Go to the Mileage tab.
  3. Ensure that auto-tracking is green and turn On.
  4. Tap the Menu icon.
  5. Choose Settings.
  6. Make sure Track Slow Speed Trips is blue and turn On.
  7. Lastly, ensure that all settings under Mileage Tracking is showing the green light.
  8. If you see red, tap Fix This.

Kindly refer to this article for the complete troubleshooting steps that you need to take to fix your mileage tracking concerns using an Android phone: Android mileage tracking troubleshooting guide.

If you're using iOs, you need to enable or set to "Always" all of your phone's settings for mileage tracking like the location services to make sure the accuracy of your records. Here's an article that'll provide your phone settings that impacts the systems ability to track your miles: Fix Mobile App for your iPhone.

If the issue persists, I'd suggest contacting our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support Team to double-check what causes this to happen and can help you fix it.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
