How to Setup & Use a fixed Mileage Rate in Microix
Microix timesheets allows users to enter and pay (tax free), at a fixed amount mileage rate, multiplied by number of miles entered. For example, the current IRS rate, or other self-determined amount, can be entered, and the amount will be paid, in the employees’ pay check, for an amount of traveled miles.

Step 1 – Set up Earning Code In MIP

In MIP, set up / add a new Earning Code “Mileage Rate”. In the Expense Account, enter the appropriate GL account for this type expense. Also, uncheck both “Track Labor Hours” and “Contribute to Net Pay Only” boxes.

Select “Fixed Hourly Amount”, and enter the appropriate rate, as shown below.

Ensure that all taxes, in the “Taxes” tab are unchecked.

Step 2 – In Microix - Configure Employee Default Values

In Microix, go to Timesheet> Setup>Employee Default Values, and highlight the employees you wish to configure for this feature. Under the Expense ID column, select “Mileage Rate”, and save.

This completes the setup of the Mileage feature.
