The Internal Revenue Service has issued optional standard mileage rates for 2019 to calculate the deductible cost of operating a vehicle for business, charitable, medical, or moving purposes.
Beginning January 1, 2019 the standard mileage rate for cars, vans, pickup, and panel trucks is:
- 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.
The business mileage rate increased 3.5 cents for business travel driven and 2 cents for medical and certain moving expense from the rates for 2018. The charitable rate is set by statute and remains unchanged.
