Use these rates when you calculate mileage for your taxes. That includes cars, vans, pickups, and panel trucks.

How to calculate mileage reimbursement manually

If you wish to calculate mileage reimbursement manually, you can do so easily by following the instructions below.

Let’s imagine that you drive your car for both business and private matters and you keep a mileage log so that you can see exactly how many miles you have driven for business. Your records show that you have driven 7000 miles for business in 2022, until the end of June.

To calculate your total reimbursement, you would need to multiply the miles you have driven by the appropriate IRS mileage rate for 2022. Your calculation would look like this:

7000 x 0.585 = $4095 (business reimbursement)

To get that reimbursement, you need to make sure that you have logged everything in your mileage log and that you can provide the proof if necessary. One way to do this is by using a mileage tracker app like Driversnote.

What if I want to use the calculator to get reimbursement for 2021? 

This business mileage calculator is set to use the standard rates for 2021. If you want to find your reimbursement for 2021, you can use the explanation for the manual calculation above and apply the following rates instead:

The IRS standard mileage rates for 2021

$0.56 per mile driven for business
$0.16 per mile for trips for medical purposes
$0.16 per mile for moving (only Armed Forces on active duty)
$0.14 per mile driven for charity

If you need to calculate for previous years, check mileage rates for 2019, 2018, and earlier.

How can I make sure my mileage logs are compliant?

The easiest way to make sure your mileage logs are compliant is by using a mileage tracker app such as Driversnote. The app uses the mileage rates for 2022 (soon, for 2023) and if you want to upload some older trips to find your reimbursement, you can do that as well. You can add trips either manually or use automatic mileage tracking to make sure you never miss a trip.

Don’t forget that you need to log not only your business, medical, charity, and moving trips, but personal ones as well if you use the vehicle for private trips. 

We hope the irs mileage calculator has helped you get an overview of your reimbursement. Let us know if you have any questions and we would love to help you out!
