2008 Mileage Reimbursement Rate

The IRS has recently released the mileage reimbursement rate for 2008.

Each year, the IRS issues standard mileage reimbursement rates. These rates are used to calculate the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes. The standard mileage rate for business is based on an annual study of the fixed and variable costs of operating an automobile.

Beginning January 1, 2008, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (including vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:

  • 50.5 cents per mile for business miles driven;

  • 19 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes; and

  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations.

On December 12, 2011, the Internal Revenue Service announced that the standard mileage rates for business will remain unchanged from the mid-year adjustment for 2012.

For the year 2012, the optional standard mileage rate will stay 55.5 cents per mile. Taxpayers have the option of using the optional standard mileage rate to calculate deductible costs of operating an automobile for business purposes.

The rate for computing the deductible medical or moving costs have also reduced to 23 cents per mile, however the rate for providing services for charitable organizations has remained unchanged at 14 cents per mile. For further information you can review the IRS announcement here.
