The IRS also issued the amount taxpayers must use in calculating reductions to a vehicle’s basis for depreciation taken under the business standard mileage rate, as well as the maximum standard automobile cost that may be used in computing the allowance under a fixed and variable rate plan. Notice 2019-2.

- 58 cents per mile driven for business purposes;
- 20 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes; and
