In December 2013, the IRS issued the 2014 optional standard mileage rates used to calculate the deductible expenses of operating a vehicle. The deduction varies based on use for business, medical, moving, or charitable purposes.
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2014, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (including vans, pickups, or panel trucks) will be:
- 56 cents per mile for business miles driven
- 23.5 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
- 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations
So what's changed? You'll notice there is a one-half cent decrease in business, medical, and moving expense rates. The charitable rate remains the same.
