  • IRS Increases Standard Mileage Rates
July 21, 2022

Minute Read


The IRS has increased the optional standard mileage rates for computing the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, medical, and moving expense purposes for the last half of 2022.

Due to recent increases in the price of fuel, the IRS has increased the optional standard mileage rates for computing the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, medical, and moving expense purposes for the second half of 2022.

The standard mileage rate for computing the deductible costs of operating an automobile for charitable purposes is set by statute and remains unchanged

For July 1, 2022, to December 31, 2022, the standard mileage rates are as follows:

Business use of auto

62.5 cents per mile (up from 58.5 cents for January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022) may be deducted if an auto is used for business purposes.

If you are an employee, your employer can reimburse you for your business travel expenses using the standard mileage rate.

If you are an employee and your employer does not reimburse you for your business travel expenses, you cannot currently deduct your unreimbursed travel expenses as miscellaneous itemized deductions.

Medical use of auto

22 cents per mile (up from 18 cents for January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022) may be deducted if an auto is used to obtain medical care (or for other deductible medical reasons) if you itemize deductions on your income tax return.

You can deduct only the part of your medical and dental expenses that exceeds 7.5% of the amount of your adjusted gross income

Moving expense for members of the Armed Forces

22 cents per mile (up from 18 cents for January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022) may be deducted if an auto is used by a member of the Armed Forces on active duty to move, pursuant to a military order, to a permanent change of station (unless such expenses are reimbursed).

The deduction for moving expenses is not currently available for other taxpayers

Charitable use of auto

14 cents per mile (the same as for January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022) may be deducted if an auto is used to provide services to a charitable organization if you itemize deductions on your income tax return.

Your charitable deduction may be limited to certain percentages of your adjusted gross income, depending on the type of charity

The IRS normally updates the standard mileage rates once a year in the fall for the next calendar year. Mid-year increases in the standard mileage rates are rare — the last time the IRS made such an increase was in 2011.
