Re: Mileage Reimbursement Rate Changes Effective January 1, 2024


The University’s mileage reimbursement rates for expenses incurred in connection with the business use of a private automobile will change in accordance with the Internal Revenue Service standard mileage rates published in IRS Notice 2024-08.

The following new rates are effective for expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2024:

  • The reimbursement rate for the use of a private automobile for University business travel will increase from 65.5 cents a mile to 67 cents a mile.
  • The reimbursement rate for driving an automobile in connection with a move or relocation will decrease by 1 cent to21 cents per mile. (Note that reimbursements for moving-related expenses, including mileage, are considered taxable wage income as of January 1, 2018).

Business and Finance Bulletin G-28, Travel Regulations, will be revised to include the mileage rate change at the next update. Please see the attached letter for more details.
