Effective July 1, 2012: As authorized by K.S.A.75-3203a, the Secretary of Administration has fixed the private vehicle maximum mileage reimbursement rates for FY 2013 at 55 cents per mile.
Is a district required to pay the state’s mileage reimbursement rate of 55 cents for privately-owned vehicles? 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 (which is 55.5 cents per mile), there are tax consquences.
Effective January 1, 2012: The federal mileage rate was set at 56.5 cents per mile.
