The IRS has issued the standard mileage rates for 2021 (Notice IR 2020-279). Taxpayers have the option of using these rates beginning January 1, 2021 as follows:
56 cents per mile - Vehicle usage as transportation for a business purpose
or business travel (includes cars, vans, pickups, or panel trucks).
This rate may also be used by employers as the maximum
amount they can use to reimburse an employee using his vehicle
for a business purpose without substantiating the actual cost
incurred by the employee.
16 cents per mile - Vehicle usage for Medical purposes, 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 - Vehicle usage for service for charitable organizations.
