What is the IRS Standard Mileage Rate?

Each year, the IRS sets a standard amount for how much a mile costs a vehicle based on statistics on the cost of owning and operating a vehicle in the U.S. in the previous year.

When a vehicle is used for business, medical, moving, or charitable purposes, we keep track of how many miles the vehicle was driven from where to where and for what purpose, and multiply the cost by the rate for that year.

Also, when you travel in a vehicle for a client and claim the expense, you can use this rate to calculate the expense as a legitimate amount as determined by the federal government.
