The Internal Revenue Service released the standard mileage reimbursement rate for 2019. You can see the IRS’s press release here.
For business expense reimbursement, the 2019 rate is $0.58 per mile. That’s up $0.035 from last year.
Reminder to California employers: many businesses reimburse employees for personal use of their vehicles at this IRS mileage rate. However, employees who can prove they spend more than $0.58 per mile to operate their personal vehicles for business use may be entitled to reimbursement of the actual expense. It’s up to the employees to prove their expenses, however.
