- 58.5 cents per mile driven for business use, up 2.5 cents from the rate for 2021;
- 18 cents per mile driven for medical purposes or for moving by qualified active-duty members of the armed forces, up 2 cents from the rate for 2021.
- 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations; the rate is set by statute and remains unchanged from 2021.
