Based on your location, you might be able to deduct mileage expenses when filing taxes. Yardbook provides a Mileage log where you can track mileage for different vehicles. This feature works independently from other features in Yardbook, which means you don’t have to use any other features to use the Mileage Log.

Here are some simple steps to get you started:

  • Add a Vehicle
  • Log Mileage
  • Build a Mileage Report
  • Export to a File

Add a Vehicle

Navigate to your Sitemap Page, and click on “Mileage Log” link.

If you have not entered any vehicles yet, Yardbook will automatically redirect you to add a new Vehicle. Simply enter the details and click “Save”. (“Name” is a required field, everything else on this page is optional.)

Build a Mileage Report

Once you have started to record mileage for your business, you have access to a detailed report at any time to get more insights about the driving history.

You can search mileage logs based on a time period, and see summary data based on the driver or vehicle.

To open the Mileage Report, click on the “View Mileage Report” link near the upper right corner of Mileage Log View.
