Federal Manager's Daily Report

The IRS has announced that a mileage rate used for certain tax purposes will decline in 2021 to 56 cents per mile from the 57.5 cents per mile currently. GSA typically, but not necessarily, follows that IRS rate in setting the mileage reimbursement rate for federal employees using a personal vehicle on official business.

There are other rates for using a personal vehicle when a government vehicle is available or for using a motorcycle, which generally move up or down with the main mileage rate.


The GSA announcement typically is made in the early days of a new year and sometimes change during the year if there are significant changes in gas prices.
