IRS mileage rates for 2019
The Internal Revenue Service has issued the 2019 optional standard mileage rates used to calculate the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes. (IRS Notice 2019-2) These are also the rates at which employers can reimburse employees for business-related driving.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car, van, pickup or panel truck will be:
- 58 cents per mile for business miles driven, up from 54.5 cents for 2018
- 20 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, up from 18 cents for 2018
- 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations, the same as for 2018 (set by statute)
The standard mileage rate for business is based on an annual study of the fixed and variable costs of operating an automobile. The rate for medical and moving purposes is based on the variable costs.
