Travel reimbursement rates...

Ok I checked the rate on

And the entire last week I had to travel to Milwaukee for training except for one day when my company comp'd my hotel stay up there. Today my company tells me that they pay .30c per mile as opposed to .48c which is what the GSA has posted. I guess a private company can pay you whatever...even nothing. Any suggestions or just to know better and ask first next time? Last time the rate was .30c was in 1995.

How you found us: sbn- ran into 20bikes riding
when it was 34.5 my old company paid us 30c per mile.
your sounds worse since they just raised from 40.5 to 48.5
They even made us attach mapquests to make sure we weren't adding miles.

They made us take off the miles it would take to get to work and back when we when straight to a job site. :jerkit

I was layed off, they went out of business and I found a new job

Well I doubt the company is going anywhere. They've got the cash flow for sure. So the $100 extra it would take to pay me out would mean nothing to them. I'm thinking I might just tack on the mileage saying that I stayed with a friend in the city every day. They might just say "we pay from your home", but might be worth a shot. I get shafted enough on logging hours and time spent here that the least I could do is get comp'd that extra bit.

You can deduct the difference between what your company pays and the GSA states on your taxes. Talk to your accountant..

Consider yourself lucky, my company reimburses me $.11 per mile. Since gas prices have went up they have increased it to $.14 per mile. And like was stated earlier, they also make us take off the miles it would take to get to work and back when we when go straight to a job site. I travel from Aurora into the loop everyday. Not fun.

No big deal, just deduct the difference on your taxes as unreimbursed business expenses assuming tha to you file a 1040.

Anyd you are right, they don't have to pay you anything, that is why the tax deduction exists. Anyhting more than zero is a good thing. By the way, the standard amount changes every year that is the GSA rate.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.
