Here are the standard mileage rates for the upcoming year

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

These mileage rates are optional meaning you can use the IRS standard rate for 2014 or you can keep track of your actual expenses of operating a vehicle and claim actual expenses.
