21-A-008  Upated FY 2021 Private Vehicle Mileage Rates (effective January 1, 2021) (supersedes 21-A-001)

Is a district required to pay the state’s mileage reimbursement rate of 56 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, there are tax consequences. Effective January 1, 2021, state and federal rates are both set at 56 cents per mile. The POV reimbursement rate used between July 1 - December 31, 2020, was 57.5 cents.  

Federal Reimbursement Rate: 56 cents
Effective January 1, 2021: The federal privately-owned vehicle mileage reimbursement rate decreased to 56 cents per mile.
