The following reimbursement rates are maximums, not allowances. In the event of an audit, employees must be able to produce receipts substantiating the amount claimed. The reimbursement rates listed below are for all Excluded and Represented employees.
Represented employees- please review your current MOU or contact your department's travel unit for effective dates.
For travel lasting 24 hours or more, employees may claim meals (as noted above), based on the following timeframes:
not claim lunch or incidentals on one-day trips. When trips are less than 24 hours and there's no overnight stay, meals claimed are taxable.
not claim meals provided by the state, meals included in hotel expenses or conference fees, meals included in transportation costs such as airline tickets, or meals that are otherwise provided. Snacks and continental breakfasts such as rolls, juice, and coffee are not considered to be meals.
No meal expense may be claimed or reimbursed more than once in any given 24-hour period.
