Current 2022 IRS Standard Mileage Rates

irs mileage rates 2020 2021 2022

The IRS standard business mileage rate is designed to cover the cost of workers using their personal vehicles to conduct business. Whether you’re an employee using your personal vehicle to do work on behalf of a company you work for or you’re self-employed, the IRS provides a rate for business reimbursement and tax deductions.

It’s worth noting that employers are not required to use the rate published by the IRS. However, if the employer offers mileage reimbursement for their employee that goes above the rate, the employee must pay income tax on that additional amount.

There are different rules for individuals who use their personal vehicles for business compared to those who use them for medical or charitable purposes. Please view our other pages in this guide for specific rules relating to mileage tracking for employees, employers, or self-employed workers.
