Procurement Services has announced changes to State mileage reimbursement for calendar year 2017.
From the State Accounting Office:
The Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) Section 50-19-7 requires use of the United States General Services Administration (GSA) rates for mileage when State employees are reimbursed for use of a privately owned vehicle on official State travel.
The GSA recently announced revised rates for calendar year 2017. The following rates are applicable to travel that occurs on or after January 1, 2017:
Tier 1 Rates:
Automobile- $ 0.535 per mile
Motorcycle- $ 0.505 per mile
Airplane- $ 1.15 per mile
Tier 2 Rate: $0.17 per mile
The mileage reimbursement rate policy has been updated on SAO’s website to reflect the 2017 rates. Any agency not using the TeamWorks Travel & Expense System will be responsible for updating the manual travel expense form. The manual travel expense form template is provided on SAO’s website.
Any reimbursement of mileage claims paid to an employee in excess of rates published in the mileage reimbursement policy must be refunded to the State or characterized as taxable compensation to the employee.
