IRS Mileage Reimbursement Rate Going Up January 1

Topics: New Laws & Legislation, Wage & Hour Issues

The Internal Revenue Service has announced the standard mileage reimbursement rate for business travel for 2013.  Effective January 1, 2013, the standard mileage rate will be 56.5 cents per mile (up from 55.5 cents per mile in 2012).  Although California employers are not required to reimburse employee travel at the IRS mileage rate, it is advisable to do so because other methods for providing adequate reimbursement are more difficult and burdensome to prove.
