IRS Increases Standard Mileage Rate For 2019

Posted by taxguru on December 17, 2018

IRS has released its official standard mileage deductions for 2019, and the business rate has been increased by 3.5 cents over the 2018 rate.  This is the largest year to year jump in a very long time. 

While these amounts aren’t going to be used on actual tax returns for more than a year, many businesses use the official IRS rate for billing customers and for reimbursing employees; so this advance notice is useful right now. 

The IRS Announcement: IRS issues standard mileage rates for 2019

Beginning on Jan. 1, 2019, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:

  • 58 cents per mile driven for business use, up 3.5 cents from the rate for 2018,
  • 20 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, up 2 cents from the rate for 2018, and
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
