IRS has announced that the optional mileage allowance for owned or leased autos (including vans, pickups or panel trucks) will increase by 1¢ to 56.5¢ per mile for business travel after 2012. This rate can also be used by employers to reimburse tax-free under an accountable plan, employees who supply their own autos for business use, and to value personal use of certain low-cost employer-provided vehicles. The rate for using a car to get medical care or in connection with a move that qualifies for the moving expense will also increase by 1¢ to 24¢ per mile.
