5 U.S. Code § 5704. Mileage and related allowances
Historical and Revision Notes
Revised Statutes and
Statutes at Large
In subsection (a), the words “Under regulations prescribed under section 5707 of this title” are substituted for “under regulations prescribed by the Director of the Bureau of the Budget”.
Standard changes are made to conform with the definitions applicable and the style of this title as outlined in the preface to the report.
2014—Subsec. (a)(1). Pub. L. 113–291, in last sentence, substituted “the rate per mile shall be the single standard mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service” for “the rate per mile established by the Administrator shall not exceed the single standard mileage rate established by the Internal Revenue Service”.
1994—Pub. L. 103–329 amended text generally. Prior to amendment, text read as follows:
“(1) 20 cents a mile for the use of a privately owned motorcycle;
“(2) 25 cents a mile for the use of a privately owned automobile; or
“(3) 45 cents a mile for the use of a privately owned airplane;
instead of actual expenses of transportation when that mode of transportation is authorized or approved as more advantageous to the Government. A determination of such advantage is not required when payment on a mileage basis is limited to the cost of travel by common carrier including per diem. Notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this subsection, in any case in which an employee who is engaged on official business for the Government chooses to use a privately owned vehicle in lieu of a Government vehicle, payment on a mileage basis is limited to the cost of travel by a Government vehicle.
“(b) In addition to the mileage allowance authorized under subsection (a) of this section, the employee may be reimbursed for—
“(1) parking fees;
“(2) ferry fees;
“(3) bridge, road, and tunnel costs; and
