Effective Jan. 1, 2023, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has established new mileage rates for 2023. When a personal vehicle must be used, the allowable business standard mileage rate has increased to 65.5 cents per mile. See 1501.4 – Procedure on Ground Transportation Expenses Including Mileage Rates for more information.
As a reminder, University travelers are encouraged to use a State-owned vehicle or leased vehicle through Fleet Services. When such vehicle is not available, travelers should use the least expensive method of ground transportation to meet their business needs. This will require pricing out available options such as renting a vehicle through the State’s Contract with EHI Direct (Enterprise and National).
