New Mileage Rate Announced by IRS

New Mileage Rate Announced by IRS

The IRS has just announced the optional standard mileage rates for the 2019 tax year.  The new rate is 58 cents for business miles driven.  That is up from the current 54.5 cents for the 2018 tax year.  

The new rate for miles driven for medical and moving purposes has been increased to 20 cents per mile, up from the current 18 cents per mile.  For the years 2018 through 2025 the deduction for moving is only allowable for members of the armed forces on active duty who move for PCS.

The new rate for miles driven in service for charitable organizations is now 14 cents.

Dear June,

I hope they did not do away with the actual cost method, as that is what I have used for years. Although ... maybe I would come out ahead. I have a relative gas miser at 40-50 miles per gallon, depending on the season.
