IRS Increases Mileage Rates for the Remainder of 2022

The Internal Revenue Service announced on June 9, 2022 an increase in the standard mileage rates in the middle of the year.  Normally they are adjusted once a year for inflation, but this midyear adjustment comes following the continuous increase in gas prices. Three out of the four mileage rates will increase by 4¢ per mile for the remainder of 2022.

 

New 2022 Mileage Rates

The new standard mileage rate for business travel will be 62.5¢ per mile. The new rate for deductible medical travel and moving expenses for active-duty military members will be 22¢ per mile. However, the rate of 14¢ per mile for charitable organizations remains the same.
 

Mileage Type Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2021 Jan 1 – June 30, 2022 July 1 – Dec 31, 2022
Business Miles 56 cents 58.5 cents 62.5 cents
Medical & Moving Miles 16 cents 18 cents 22 cents
Charitable Miles 14 cents 14 cents 14 cents

 

IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said “The IRS is adjusting the standard mileage rates to better reflect the recent increase in fuel prices”. As gas prices continue to rise around the world, many people are calling for action. “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.”

While these changes will be helpful for many, it is important to note that taxpayers always have the option of calculating the actual costs of using their vehicle instead of using the standard mileage rates.
