January 1, 2019: Update standard mileage reimbursement rate for 2019 (released by Internal Revenue Service)

Update standard mileage reimbursement rate for 2019 (released by Internal Revenue Service)

January 01, 2019 1214

See the IRS’s press release. For business expense reimbursement, the 2019 rate is $0.58 per mile. That’s up $0.035 from last year. California employers need to reimburse such common expenses as work-related travel, dining expenses and mileage when an employee uses a personal car for work-related business. 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.
