2019 Mileage Rates for Business and Nonprofit Work
The IRS has issued the 2019 mileage rates.
The business mileage rate has increased to 58 cents per mile (up 3.5 cents from 2018). You may need to adjust your budgets and planning accordingly.
For miles driven while helping a charity, you may use 14 cents per mile.
If you need to drive for medical reasons, you can use 20 cents per mile (a 2 cent increase).
I'd also like to offer a heads up- since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, you can no longer deduct unreimbursed employee travel expenses.
