12. IRS issues standard mileage rates for 2021

Updated: May 13






Beginning on January 1, 2021, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups, or panel trucks) will be:

  • 56 cents per mile driven for business use, down 1.5 cents from the rate for 2020,

  • 16 cents per mile driven for medical, or moving purposes for qualified active-duty members of the Armed Forces, down 1 cent from the rate for 2020, and

  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations, the rate is set by statute and remains unchanged from 2020.

Our recommendation to business owners is to take a picture of the odometer reading a couple of times a year, to make sure you know your miles when reporting period comes.
