Not All Agencies Adopt the IRS Mileage Reimbursement Rate

In a recent blog entry, I noted that the IRS has decided to maintain 55.5 cents per mile as the business mileage reimbursement rate through 2012.

Some Agencies Set Own Rate:  It's a good thing to remember, however, that not all state and local agencies have adopted this standard on their contracts.  For example, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is maintaining a 51 cents per mile rate through September 2012 for their contracts.

Check Invoices and Contracts:  If you're a public agency, make sure you check invoices carefully so that you pay the contractual mileage reimbursement rate you've agreed to.  If you're a contractor doing business with the government, review your contract before submitting an invoice so that you submit the correct rate on your invoices.
