New mileage reimbursement rates for 2020

Auto dashboard and steering wheel

The IRS recently announced that the standard mileage rate for 2020 is 57.5 cents per mile.

HFC uses this rate to reimburse employees for the approved use of your vehicle for business purposes. Please note: All approved conference-related travel by automobile should use the “Enterprise Car Rental Calculator” as indicated in the College Travel and Conference Reimbursement Procedure dated Jan. 1, 2015, to determine the proper reimbursable amount.

Please use the 2019 rate of 58 cents to submit all approved requested reimbursements for travel through Dec. 31, 2019. If you have not yet done so, please submit all December 2019 reimbursement requests for approval now.

If you have any January 2020 mileage reimbursement requests, please submit them on a separate form from the December 2019 reimbursement requests, so the rates can be distinguished.

Mileage reimbursement requests should be submitted monthly. For questions or more information, contact Barbara Eisterhold at 313-845-9850 or
