2019 Standard Mileage Rate

Beginning on January 1, 2018, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) 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 2017
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations. This rate is set by statute and remains unchanged.

A change effective with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act does not allow taxpayers to claim a miscellaneous itemized deduction for unreimbursed employee travel expenses.  Taxpayers also cannot claim a deduction for moving expenses, except members of the Armed Forces on active duty moving under orders to a permanent change of station.
