Effective Feb 1, 2015, if an employee is attending a conference conducted at a designated location, actual lodging expenses may be reimbursed when utilizing local funds. We will no longer require an In-State/Out-of-State Higher Lodging Request Form. Each request for reimbursement must include documentation to substantiate the actual rate; such as a conference brochure, registration form and etc.

Effective January 1, 2015, the state mileage reimbursement rate for business related travel will increase from 56 cents per mile to 57.5 cents per mile.  The rate is consistent with the Internal Revenue Service’s standard mileage rate.  All travel prior to January 1st, will be reimbursed at 56 cents per mile.

PVAMU has announced a September 1, 2014 start date for the implementation of a safe harbor rule of 90 days for the taxation of employee reimbursements (travel, purchase, business meals, etc.) that exceed a 90 day submission.  Please be aware that reimbursements must be submitted within 90 days to avoid paying taxes on the reimbursement.
