IRS has announced that the optional mileage allowance for owned or leased autos (including vans, pickups or panel trucks) will remain at 55.5¢ per mile for business travel after 2011—that is, unchanged from the July 1, 2011 mid-year adjustment. This rate can also be used by employers to reimburse tax-free under an accountable plan employees who supply their own autos for business use, and to value personal use of certain low-cost employer-provided vehicles. The rate for using a car to get medical care or in connection with a move that qualifies for the moving expense will decrease by .5¢ from the July 1, 2011 mid-year adjustment to 23¢ per mile. The standard mileage rate is 14¢ per mile for use of an auto in rendering servivces to a charitable organization.
