Mileage Reimbursement Rates for 2017

Every year, the IRS sets standard mileage reimbursement rates for businesses in the U.S. For 2017, the rates are decreasing slightly, in accordance with the recent dip in gas prices.

As of January 1st, 2017, the standard mileage reimbursement 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
