The IRS announced December 17 that the standard business mileage rate will fall in 2016 to 54 cents per mile (down from 57.5 cents per mile in 2015), while mileage for medical or moving purposes will decrease to 19 cents per mile (down from 23 cents per mile in 2015). Lower fuel prices are a contributor to these declines in the mileage rates. The standard charitable mileage rate remains set at the statutory rate of 14 cents per mile.
