GSA Increases Mileage Rates

GSA has increased the reimbursement rates for use of personal vehicles on government business.

GSA is increasing the mileage rate for federal employees authorized to drive their own cars on government business beginning in January. The new rate will be 37.5 cents from the current rate of 36 cents.

For those readers who may be taking their own airplane on government business instead of flying commercial, you will also get more money when you take off from your local airport. You will begin receiving 99.5 cents per mile instead of 95.5 cents. And, if you happen to be driving your motorcycle instead of flying your plane, you will get 28.5 cents instead of 27.5 cents per mile.

The Federal Register notice announcing the change is available from the link on the left hand side of the page.
