Use the standard mileage rate to figure the deductible costs of operating your car for business purposes. If you do not use the standard mileage rate, you may be able to deduct your actual car expenses. Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the standard mileage rates are:

  • 53.5 cents per mile for business miles driven, down from 54 cents for 2016
  • 17 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, down from 19 cents for 2016
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations

 

  2017 2016
Business mileage  $0.54   $0.54 
Moving  $0.17   $0.19 
Charitable  $0.14   $0.14 
Medical  $0.17   $0.19 

 

The business mileage rate decreased half a cent per mile and the medical and moving expense rates each dropped 2 cents per mile from 2016.

The standard mileage rate for business is based on an annual study of the fixed and variable costs of operating an automobile. The rate for medical and moving purposes is based on the variable costs.
