2015 Mileage Rate Change

The IRS announced changes in the standard business mileage rates for calendar year 2015.  Beginning January 1, 2015, the standard business mileage reimbursement rate for personal vehicle use on approved University business will increase from 56 cents to 57.5 cents per mile. See the Rates section of the Administrative Policy: Traveling on University Business. The standard mileage rate for moving expenses will be 23 cents per mile as non-taxable and the remaining 34.5 cents per mile as taxable. Business mileage incurred in 2014 but reimbursed in 2015 should be reimbursed using the 2014 mileage rates. The Employee Expense Worksheet (UM1612) and the Moving/Relocation Expense Documentation Form (UM 1357) are being updated to reflect the changes to the mileage rates.
