Members of the 78th Legislature
As required by the General Appropriations Act of the 2003 Legislature, I am pleased to submit the Mileage Reimbursement Rate Study. This report summarizes the transportation expenses incurred by the state through the use of personally owned or leased motor vehicles by state employees and demonstrates the cost factors affecting the mileage reimbursement rate.
The Study outlines the mileage reimbursement expenditures, examines vehicle operating cost factors affecting the mileage reimbursement rate, and compares several operating cost reimbursement models.
For additional copies, please call my Taxpayer Publications Division toll free at 1-800-531-5441, extension 3-4900, or direct in Austin at 512/463-4900. This report is also available on my Window on State Government Web site at www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/mileage/.
I hope you find the information in this report helpful. Thanks for all that you do for Texas.
