Mileage Rates -- Reimbursement rate per mile for privately owned vehicles
State Reimbursement Rate:
Effective July 1, 2018: As authorized by K.S.A.75-3203a, the Secretary of Administration has fixed the private vehicle maximum mileage reimbursement state rate for FY 2019 at 54.5 cents per mile. This rate is an increase of one cent per mile over FY 2018.

Is a district required to pay the state’s mileage reimbursement rate of 54.5 cents for privately-owned vehicles?
Answer: No, a local board of education can decide to reimburse teachers/parents at a rate other than the state rate. If the mileage rate your district reimburses exceeds the federal mileage rate (54.5 cents per mile), there are tax consequences.

Federal Reimbursement Rate:
Effective January 1, 2018: The federal mileage private vehicle mileage reimbursement rate was set at 54.5 cents per mile.
