2017 Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) Mileage Reimbursement Rates; 2017 Standard Mileage Rate for Moving Purposes
Document Number: 2016-31264
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-12-28
Agency: General Services Administration, Agencies and Commissions
GSA is required by statute to set the mileage reimbursement rate for privately owned automobiles (POA) as the single standard mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In addition, the IRS' mileage rate for medical or moving purposes is used to determine the POA rate when a Government-furnished automobile is authorized. This IRS rate also establishes the standard mileage rate for moving purposes as it pertains to official relocation. Finally, GSA's annual privately owned airplane and motorcycle mileage reimbursement rate reviews have resulted in new CY 2017 rates. GSA conducts independent airplane and motorcycle studies that evaluate various factors, such as the cost of fuel, the depreciation of the original vehicles costs, maintenance and insurance, and/or by applying consumer price index data. FTR Bulletin 17-02 establishes and announces the new CY 2017 POV mileage reimbursement rates for official temporary duty and relocation travel ($0.535 per mile for POAs, $0.17 per mile for POAs when a Government furnished automobile is authorized, $1.15 per mile for privately owned airplanes, $0.505 per mile for privately owned motorcycles, and $0.17 per mile for moving purposes), pursuant to the process discussed above. This notice of subject bulletin is the only notification to agencies of revisions to the POV mileage rates for official travel, and relocation, other than the changes posted on GSA's Web site.
