It does, but you need to make your goals part of the actor.
Motion mixer will then move your goals too, letting IK happen.

If you don't make the goals part of your actor, then Ik will still work, but the goals wont be in the right place moving with the skeleton, so it'll look screwey.

I parented the IK goals to the object but I still am having no luck do I need to use bones as the goal?

No, you just need to have any parts that you animate and keyframe to be the actor. Motion mixer then applies these motions back to the rig, moving it.

So if you have IK goals to animate legs or arms, they need to be part of the actor, not just the leg or arm bones, as they are not directly animated, they are IK-solved. Without the goals they won't move.
