Is a district required to pay the state’s mileage reimbursement rate 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, there are tax consequences. 

Federal Reimbursement Rate:  65.5 cents (increased 3 cents on January 1, 2023)
