Travel Update #09-06: Mileage Reimbursement for the Use of Personal Vehicles
|TO:||Agency Travel Coordinators|
|FROM:||James P. Sledge, Chairman|
|DATE:||May 5, 2009|
|SUBJECT:||Mileage Reimbursement for the Use of Personal Vehicles|
The State Finance Act (30 ILCS 105/12-2(b)) provides that mileage reimbursement for the use of personal vehicles be established on July 1 of each year and shall be in accordance with the federal government rate as of that date. Should this rate increase during the course of the fiscal year, no change will be made to the State's rate. Should this rate decrease during the course of the fiscal year, the State's rate will be changed immediately to reflect the new rate.
This Update shall serve as a reminder to state agencies and employees that the mileage reimbursement rate may change on July 1, 2009 to reflect the federal rate in place at that time. The State's reimbursement rate is currently $0.505/mile. The current federal rate is $0.55/mile.
Again, unless the federal rate changes, the State of Illinois mileage reimbursement rate for the use of personal vehicles will increase from $.0505/mile to $0.55/mile effective July 1, 2009.
