> Travel Coordinators:
> The private vehicle reimbursement rate for the State will remain 44.5
> cents per mile until further notice.
> The IRS recently announced that the standard mileage rate will
> increase from 44.5 cents per mile to 48.5 cents, effective January 1,
> 2007. This IRS rate is set for a particular purpose: the deductibility
> of operating a vehicle for business use.
> State travel policy mirrors federal rates which are set by the General
> Services Administration (GSA) for employees of the Federal government.
> The State is not changing the private vehicle reimbursement rate until
> we know what the GSA intends to do. At this point, the GSA hasn't
> announced a rate for 2007. When the GSA announces a rate for 2007, we
> will begin the process of changing State travel policy which includes
> giving notice and seeking the approval of bargaining units. As always,
> the State's intent is to maintain a single travel policy for all
> Will the GSA change the rate to 48.5 cents per mile? That's unclear.
> We've contacted GSA officials and, so far, they have only indicated
> that the rate will be at or less than the IRS standard rate.
> We will keep you informed as new information becomes available.
> Please call if you have questions.
