The IRS has not yet released the standard mileage rates for 2018. The rates are typically updated in December for the following year. So we expect the IRS to release the standard mileage rates for 2018 in December of 2017.
The optional standard mileage rates for business use of a vehicle will drop slightly in 2017, the second consecutive annual decline. For business use of a car, van, pickup truck, or panel truck, the rate for 2017 will be 53.5 cents per mile, down from 54 cents per mile in 2016. Taxpayers can use the optional standard mileage rates to calculate the deductible costs of operating an automobile.
Driving for medical or moving purposes may be deducted at 17 cents per mile, which is two cents lower than for 2016.
The rate for service to a charitable organization is unchanged at 14 cents per mile.
