UPDATE: State 2017 Mileage Reimbursement Rate

Jan. 4, 2017

To: UNLV Campus Community

The federal government has recently released the 2017 standard mileage rate for transportation expenses reducing the rate from 54 cents per mile to 53.5 cents per mile. The allowable State mileage rate for the use of personal vehicles in the conduct of University business either at the direction of the State agency or for the personal convenience of the employee is adjusted periodically to reflect the allowable federal rate.

On the basis of the change in the federal standard mileage rate, the State mileage reimbursement rates are as follows:

  1. For an employee using his/her own personal vehicle for the University convenience, the mileage reimbursement rate has decreased from 54 cents per mile to 53.5 cents per mile.
  2. For an employee using his/her own personal vehicle for the employee’s convenience, the employee will be reimbursed at one-half the standard mileage reimbursement rate, which has decreased from 27 cents per mile to 26.75 cents per mile.

The rates are effective January 1, 2017 and will remain in effect throughout the calendar year 2017.

If you have any questions please contact the Accounts Payable office at 5-1156.
