Standard mileage rates effective January 1, 2015.  The IRS rate for privately owned automobiles increases to 57.5 cents per mile while the moving mileage rate decreases to 23 cents per mile. 

K.S.A. 75-3203a provides that the mileage reimbursement rate shall not exceed the lowest of the following rates:

  1. the rate allowed by the IRS;
  2. the rate used in preparing the governor’s budget report under K.S.A. 75-3721, and amendments thereto; or
  3. any revision of the rate as specifically directed in appropriation acts of the legislature.


Thus, per the requirements of K.S.A. 75-3203a, the Department of Administration will NOT raise the privately owned automobile reimbursement rate for the remainder of FY 2015.  However, the moving mileage rate must decrease so as not to exceed the IRS moving mileage rate.


As authorized by K.S.A.75-3203a, the Secretary of Administration has fixed the following private vehicle maximum mileage reimbursement rates for the remainder of FY 2015, effective January 1, 2015:

     Reduced -
         23¢ per mile for moving mileage rate

     Unchanged -
         56¢ per mile for privately owned automobile
         53¢ per mile for privately owned motorcycle
         $1.31 per mile for privately owned airplane (based on air miles rather
          than highway miles)
