According to the IRS the Standard Mileage Rate increased one center per mile for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes. While the diocese does not impose a standard rate for all reimbursed mileage, the Priest Compensation Letter does make it a policy to follow the IRS rate when reimbursing priests for mileage. Effective January 1, 2013, any priest who submits monthly mileage in excess of 400 miles per month will be reimbursed for the excess business mileage at the current rate allowed by the IRS at 56.5 cents (current IRS rate for 2013) per mile. Priests who provide weekend assistance are to be reimbursed at the current IRS rate ($.565 for 2013).
