The Internal Revenue Service has announced an increase in the standard mileage reimbursement rate for business miles. The rate has been adopted for use by state employees and is effective beginning Jan. 1, 2011, through Dec. 31, 2011.

Mileage rates are used to calculate reimbursements to employees that use their personal vehicles for business trips. The university utilizes two reimbursement rates. The IRS standard mileage reimbursement rate (51.0 cents) is used when a state-owned vehicle is not available. A lesser rate (44.0 cents) is used when a state vehicle is declined or not requested by the employee.

Employees are asked use the new mileage reimbursement rates below when completing employee expense forms for trips taken between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2011.

  • State-owned vehicle not available (IRS Standard): Old rate, 50.0 cents per mile; new rate (effective Jan. 1, 2011), 51.0 cents per mile.
  • State-owned vehicle declined or not requested: Old rate, 43.0 cents per mile; new rate (effective Jan. 1, 2011), 44.0 cents per mile.

Those who have questions regarding travel or expense reimbursements may contact Tami Galema-Liebl, the university’s travel claims clerk, at 389-5006 or at tamara.galema-liebl@mnsu.edu.
