Effective July 1, 2008, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has increased the business standard mileage rate from 50.5 cents per mile to 58.5 cents per mile. Pursuant to state statute, the Office of State Budget and Management changed the allowable rate of reimbursement for travel on official business by state employees to be equal to the IRS rate.
In processing travel reimbursement forms for trips that begin on or after July 1, 2008, the allowable rate is 58.5 cents. For trips that began before July 1, 2008, the rate is 50.5 cents.
University travelers are obligated to use a State vehicle (if available) when the round trip exceeds 100 miles. The reimbursement rate is 33 cents per mile when an individual uses a personal car when a state car is available.
If you have any questions regarding the new rate or the processing of travel forms, please contact Pat Tayloe at 919-843-5098 or email@example.com .
