The 2018 Mileage Rates Mileage


2018 Mileage Rates are Announced ~
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2018, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:
54.5 cents per mile for business miles driven, up a penny from last year.
• 18 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes.
• 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations.

Taxpayers always have the option of calculating the actual costs of using their vehicle rather than using the standard mileage rates. To claim actual, receipts must be maintained.

Mileage logs must be maintained for all business vehicles and/or for all business miles regardless as to whether you claim the standard mileage rate or your actual expenses.
