Why is my mileage tracking periodically is unable to load past trips and exporting blank excel documents when I download my trips?

My app and desktop both do not show this information and when I export, the only thing that exports is a blank Excel document.  I am left praying that a month worth of trips is not lost when I attempt to do this.  This problem has been persistent and has been and random in its frequency.


Hi attorneyjasonwil,

We receive reports about not being able to track and export mileage. Our engineers are already working to get it fixed. 

As a workaround, you can manually track it using spreadsheet while this issue is still in progress. I suggest contacting our support team to add you on the affected list of users. Here's how to reach them:

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Self-Employed account.
  2. Select the Help (next to Assistant) menu on the upper right.
  3. Select Contact us.
  4. Fill in Ask a question (or tell us what’s wrong), then click Continue.
  5. Choose Chat.

I've got this article for if you need more help about QuickBooks Self-Employed: Category Types Of Income And Expense.

Feel free to let me know if you need anything else. I'll be here to assist.

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.
