Question/Topic: If an employee of the State is required to use his/her personal vehicle on state business, what is the reimbursement rate, per mile, which the employee may claim? 
Answer/Pointer: The 1999 Florida Statute that covers this is 112.061(7)(d)1. "The use of privately owned vehicles for official travel in lieu of publicly owned vehicles or common carriers may be authorized by the agency head or his or her designee. Whenever travel is by privately owned vehicle, the traveler shall be entitled to a mileage allowance at a fixed rate of 25 cents per mile for state fiscal year 1994-1995 and 29 cents per mile thereafter or the common carrier fare for such travel, as determined by the agency head. Reimbursement for expenditures related to the operation, maintenance, and ownership of a vehicle shall not be allowed when privately owned vehicles are used on public business and reimbursement is made pursuant to this paragraph, except as provided in subsection (8)."
