New Mileage Rates For 2011


The IRS has released it’s mileage rates for tax year 2011. These standard mileage rates can be used for deducting qualified miles used for business, charitable, medical or moving expenses. Beginning on Jan 1, 2011 you can deduct the following:

  • 51 cents per mile for business miles driven
  • 19 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations

We’ve said it before and we’ll stress it again. The IRS requires that you keep accurate records to substantiate any mileage deduction that you claim on your tax return. This includes a detailed “mileage log” as well as receipts for gas, repairs and maintenance. If you, by chance, are audited by the IRS, they will want to see these items to prove your claims for deduction. E-File Florida cannot over emphasize:  KEEP GOOD RECORDS!

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

Revenue Procedure 2010-51 and Notice 2010-88 contain additional details regarding the standard mileage rates.
