Mileage Reimbursement Rates

January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021

  • The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced a increase in the standard mileage reimbursement rate for business miles. 
  • The rate has been adopted for use by state employees and is effective beginning January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021. 
  • Mileage rates are used to calculate reimbursements to employees that use their personal vehicle for business trips. 
  • Employees should note that the university actually utilizes two reimbursement rates. 
  • The IRS standard mileage reimbursement rate (56 cents per mile) is used when a state owned vehicle is not available.  
  • A lesser rate (49 cents per mile) is used when a state vehicle is declined or not requested by the employee.
  • Please use the new mileage reimbursement rates when completing employee expense forms for trips taken between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.
