Standard Mileage Rates for Official Travel (Flag Voice 579)


Colleagues, as we move into the heart of PCS transfer season, gasoline prices are at the forefront of our members’ minds.  Gasoline prices around the country have reached record highs, with the national average currently $4.59 per gallon and some parts of the country reporting prices as high as $7.69 per gallon. 

We continue to stay connected to our partners in DoD as well as the rest of the government agencies regarding issues that affect pay and compensation for our members. The standard mileage reimbursement rates for vehicles used during official travel are set by the General Services Administration (GSA).  GSA adopts the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) standard automobile mileage rate and these rates are applicable to all military members and civilian employees.  The IRS updates mileage rates annually, but occasionally a special adjustment is made within the year.

I am happy to report that the IRS just announced increases to the standard mileage rates that will go into effect on 01 July 2022.  These increases will directly affect the mileage reimbursement rate for PCS and TDY travel for military members and civilian employees alike.  The mileage rate for PCS travel will increase from $0.18 to $0.22 per mile, and the mileage rate for TDY travel will increase from $0.585 to $0.625 per mile.  Regular annual adjustments to mileage rates typically reflect an increase or decrease of one to two cents.  Mid-year adjustments are rare, with the last mid-year adjustment by the IRS being in 2011.  While an increase of $0.04 per mile may not seem like a lot, it is greater than the typical adjustment, and is the largest single increase in mileage rates since 2011.

Questions regarding these efforts should be directed to CAPT Tony Williams at Anthony.w.williams@uscg.mil.
