Beginning January 1, 2018, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:

  • 54.5 cents per mile for business miles driven, up from 53.5 cents for 2017.
  • 18 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, up from 17 cents for 2017.

Taxpayers always have the option of calculating the actual costs of using their vehicle rather than using the standard mileage rates.
