2021 Standard Mileage Rates

2021 Standard Mileage Rates | Dlaby Wendland & Co. | CPAs & Business Advisors | Grand Junction CO | Glenwood Springs CO | Montrose CO 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 from 2020,
  • 16 cents per mile driven for medical, or moving purposes for qualified active duty members of the Armed Forces, down from 2020, and
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations, remains unchanged from 2020.

Remember, under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, taxpayers cannot claim a miscellaneous itemized deduction for unreimbursed employee travel expenses. Taxpayers also cannot claim a deduction for moving expenses, unless they are members of the Armed Forces on active duty moving under orders to a permanent change of station.

Taxpayers always have the option of calculating the actual costs of using their vehicle rather than using the standard mileage rates.
