2016 Privately Owned Vehicle (POV) Mileage Reimbursement Rates; 2016 Standard Mileage Rate for Moving Purposes
The General Services Administration (GSA) uses the single standard mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as the mileage rate for privately owned automobiles (POA). 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 2016 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 16-02 establishes the new CY 2016 POV mileage reimbursement rates for official temporary duty and relocation travel ($0.54 for POAs, $0.19 for POAs when a Government furnished automobile is authorized, $1.17 for privately owned airplanes, $0.51 for privately owned motorcycles, and $0.19 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.
