2019 Mileage Rates

2019 Mileage Rates

As of January 1, 2019, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car, van, pickup or panel truck are:

• 58 cents per mile for business miles driven (up from 54.5 cents in 2018)

• 20 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes (up from 18 cents in 2018)

• 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations (currently fixed by Congress)

Standard mileage rates are used to calculate the amount of a deductible business, moving, medical or charitable expense. To use the rates, simply multiply the standard mileage rates by the number of miles traveled. Note that taxpayers cannot claim a deduction for moving expenses in 2019 with the exception of certain active duty members of the Armed Forces.

You must keep appropriate records of business travel and personal travel. Mobile applications can help you track your miles. You can ask your PPG Partners professional for a list of mobile applications to help you get started.
