The IRS has released the 2017 optional standard mileage rates that employees, self-employed individuals, and other taxpayers can use to compute deductible costs of operating automobiles (including vans, pickups and panel trucks) for business, medical, moving and charitable purposes.

The 2017 standard mileage rate has decreased to 53.5 cents per mile from 54 cents per mile for business use and 17 cents per mile from 19 cents per mile for medical and moving uses. It remains at 14 cents per mile for charitable uses.

The updated rates are effective for deductible transportation expenses paid or incurred on or after January 1, 2017, and for mileage allowances or reimbursements paid to, or transportation expenses paid or incurred by, an employee or a charitable volunteer on or after January 1, 2017.
