Summary: Updated FY 2017 Private Vehicle Mileage Rates

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced changes in standard mileage rates effective January 1, 2017.  The IRS rate for privately owned automobiles decreases to 53.5 cents per mile while the moving mileage rate decreases to 17 cents per mile.

K.S.A. 75-3203a provides that the mileage reimbursement rates shall not exceed the lowest of the following:

  1. the rate allowed by the IRS;
  2. the rate used in preparing the governor’s budget report under K.S.A. 75-3721, and amendments thereto; or
  3. any revision of the rate as specifically directed in appropriation acts of the legislature.

Thus, per the requirements of K.S.A. 75-3203a, the Department of Administration has reduced the rates for mileage reimbursement for the remainder of FY 2017, effective January 1, 2017:

  • 53.5¢ per mile for privately owned automobile
  • 50.5¢ per mile for privately owned motorcycle
  • $1.15 per mile for privately owned airplane (based on air miles rather than highway miles)
  • 17¢ per mile for moving mileage rate
