Spring 2022 IRS Updates

Mileage rates increase

Mileage rates for business travel are set for 2022. The standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) are:

  • 58.5 cents per mile driven for business use, up 2.5 cents from 2021,
  • 18 cents per mile for medical, or moving purposes for qualified active duty members of the Armed Forces, up 2 cents from 2021, and
  • 14 cents per mile driven for charitable work. This rate remains unchanged from 2021.


The IRS – Change Your Expectations

With historic backlogs and labor shortages due to COVID-19, the IRS is experiencing delays in some of its services including live phone support, paper returns filed, answering mail from taxpayers and reviewing tax returns. Filing earlier and electronically are two ways to avoid possible delays.

Update: IRS Suspends Some Taxpayer Notices to help the agency get caught up this tax season.


Look out for IRS Letters 6419 and 6475

Recipients of the 2021 advanced Child Tax Credit (CTC) monthly payments should have received IRS Letter 6419 which details the total amount of CTC payments received. A separate letter was sent to the taxpayer and to the spouse, with half of the advance payments shown on each letter. Taxpayers need this letter to file their 2021 tax return. Most eligible taxpayers received their full CTC but parents of children born in 2021 and families that added qualifying dependents in 2021 should claim a Recovery Rebate Tax Credit.

Like the advance CTC letter, a letter from the IRS was sent to recipients of the third Economic Impact Payment. Letter 6475 summarized any funds the taxpayer received for this stimulus and should be included with the tax return information, not return.
