Beginning July 1, 2022, the business standard mileage rate for transportation expenses paid or incurred will be 62.5 cents per mile. The IRS recognizes the gasoline price increases which has caused this midyear change. A new rate for deductible medical or moving expenses will be in effect starting July 1, 2022. The price will be changed to 22 cents per mile as opposed to 18 cents in the first half of 2022.
The business standard mileage rate is used to calculate the deductible costs of operating a vehicle for business purposes. In addition, the federal government and many businesses use this rate as a benchmark for reimbursing their employees’ mileage.
IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig stated, “We are aware a number of unusual factors have come into play involving fuel costs, and we are taking this special step to help taxpayers, businesses, and others who use this rate.”
