Standard Mileage Rates for 2022

As of January 1, the optional standard mileage rates used to calculate the deductible costs of operating a car (or van, pickup or panel truck) for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes are as follows:

  • 58.5 cents per mile driven for business use, up two and a half cents from the 2021 rate;
  • 18 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes for qualified active-duty members of the Armed Forces, up two cents from 2021; and
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations. This rate is set by statute and remains unchanged from 2021.
Under TCJA, taxpayers cannot claim a miscellaneous itemized deduction for unreimbursed employee travel expenses. In addition, taxpayers cannot claim a deduction for moving expenses, with the exception of members of the Armed Forces on active duty moving under orders to a permanent change of station.
