Mileage Reimbursements

The Texas Mileage Guide is no longer accepted for mileage documentation starting 1/1/10, it must be documented point to point with either an odometer log or an electronic mapping service printout preferably Mapquest.

How It Works

Mileage Rate Changes Effective January 1, 2015

According to the Internal Revenue Service Announcement 2013-80, issued December 6, 2013, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (including vans, pickups, or panel trucks) has changed. The new rates for travel occurring on or after January 1, 2015 are:

  • 57.5 cents per mile for business miles driven
  • 23 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes

The new rate for business miles compares to a rate of 56 cents per mile for travel dates prior to Jan. 1, 2015. The rate for medical and moving purposes compares to 23.5 cents for travel dates prior to Jan. 1, 2015.

Note: The rate of reimbursement is affected by the travel date, not the reimbursement date.

The VP5 travel payment voucher will automatically calculate the mileage reimbursement rate based on travel dates.
