How to change the Milage Reimbursement rate in turbotax?

I've read that I can deduct the amount my company doesn't pay me for mileage. At this time they pay $0.45 per mile. The IRS Mileage rate is $0.54 in 2016, so how do I deduct the $0.09 in turbotax?

How to change the Milage Reimbursement rate in turbotax?

Use the steps below as a guide to enter the difference between your expenses and what you were reimbursed in the job-related expenses section.

1.       Go to the search bar in the top right and enter “job expenses, employee

2.       Select “Jump to job expenses, employee

3.      Enter your occupation and proceed to answer the questions

4.      When you arrive to “Any Vehicle Expenses or Sales?” select “Yes

5.      Continue answering the questions and enter the mileage for your vehicle

6.       When asked “Did You Use The Standard Mileage Rate?” select “Yes

7.       When asked “Do you want to see if your actual vehicle expenses give you a bigger deduction? Answer “No

8.       Keep going until you reach the end of the employee business deductions (Not the end of the auto business deductions) until you arrive to a screen titled Reimbursements for Your Expenses

9.       When asked “Did any of your employers reimburse you for any of your expenses?” answer “Yes

10. Now you should be at the “Tell Us About Reimbursements” page. Enter the reimbursements you received for mileage from your employer.

11. You can calculate that amount if you don’t have it by: taking the total business miles driven and multiplying it times the rate at which your employer reimbursed you.

12. Continue to the Job Expenses Summary page and your total expense reimbursement should now be the difference between the standard mileage rate and your employers reimbursement rate for your business miles driven
