IRS Announces Standard Mileage Rates for 2019

19 Dec

Dec-BotLine-IRS New Mileage Rate-19

CA 2019 Standard Mileage Rates For
Cars, Van, Pickups & Panel Trucks Is:
$.58/per Mile

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently issued the 2019 optional standard mileage rates used to calculate the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes. Beginning January 1, 2019, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be: 58 cents per mile.

The law requires employers to reimburse employees for actual necessary costs in performing duties for the company, which includes the use of personal vehicles when driven for company business.

While there is no legal obligation to use the IRS numbers, the California Department of Industrial Relations accepts this rate as appropriate.

If an employer wishes to use a lower number, they have the burden of proof that the reimbursement rate is accurate and appropriate for the employee’s vehicle and use. This can be a challenge based on age of vehicle, insurance and repair costs, wear and tear, etc.
