Greetings,

The University’s mileage reimburse rates for expenses incurred in connection with the business use of a private automobile for travel will increase in accordance with the Internal Revenue Service standard mileage rates published in IRS Notice 2019-02.

The following new rates are effective for expenses incurred on or after January 1, 2019:

  • The reimbursement rate for the use of a private automobile for University business travel will increase from 54.5 cents a mile to 58 cents a mile.
  • The reimbursement rate for driving or shipping an automobile in connection with a move or relocation will increase from 18 cents a mile to 20 cents a mile.

Business and Finance Policy G-28, Travel Regulations, has been revised to include the mileage rate change. If you have any questions please contact Annette Gonzales at (805) 893-7037 or annette.gonzales@bfs.ucsb.edu.

Thank you.
