§ 599.631. Transportation by Privately Owned Automobile - Excluded Employees.
(a) Where the employee is authorized to use a privately owned automobile on official state business the reimbursement rate shall be 34 cents per mile. Claims for reimbursement for private vehicle expenses must include the vehicle license number and the name of each state officer, employee or board, commission or authority member transported on the trip. No reimbursement of transportation expense shall be allowed any passenger in any vehicle operated by another state officer, employee or member.
(1) Expenses arising from travel between home and headquarters or garage shall not be allowed, except as provided in section 599.626(d)(2) or 599.626.1(c) of these regulations, regardless of the employee's normal mode of transportation.
(2) When a trip is commenced or terminated at a claimant's home on a regularly scheduled work day, the distance traveled shall be computed from either his/her residence or headquarters, whichever shall result in the lesser distance except as provided in section 599.626.1(c) of these regulations.
(3) However, if the employee commences or terminates travel on a regularly scheduled day off, mileage may be computed from his/her residence.
(b) Where the employee's use of a privately owned automobile is authorized for travel to or from a common carrier terminal, and the automobile is not parked at the terminal during the period of travel, the employee may claim double the number of miles between the terminal and the employee's headquarters or residence, whichever is less, at a rate as defined in section 599.631(a) of these regulations, while the employee occupies the automobile for the distance between the terminal and his/her residence or headquarters. If the employee commences or terminates travel one hour before or after his/her regularly scheduled work day, or on a regularly scheduled day off, mileage may be computed from his/her residence.
(c) All ferry, bridge, or toll road charges will be allowed with any required receipts.
(d) All necessary parking charges while on state business will be allowed, with any required receipts, for:
(1) Day parking on trips away from the headquarters office and excluded employee's primary residence.
(2) Overnight public parking on trips away from the headquarters and excluded employee's primary residence, except that parking shall not be claimed if expense-free overnight parking is available.
(3) Day parking adjacent to either a headquarters office, a temporary job site or training site, but only if the excluded employee had other reimbursable private or state automobile expenses for the same day. An employee may not prorate weekly or monthly parking fees.
(e) Gasoline, maintenance and automobile repair expenses will not be allowed.
(f) The mileage reimbursement rates include the cost of maintaining liability insurance at the minimum amount prescribed by a law and collision insurance sufficient to cover the reasonable value of the automobile, less a deductible. When a privately owned automobile operated by a state officer, agent or excluded employee is damaged by collision or is otherwise accidentally damaged, reimbursement for repair or the deductible to a maximum of $500 will be allowed if:
(1) the damage occurred while the automobile was used on official state business by permission or authorization of the employing agency; and
(2) the automobile was damaged through no fault of the state officer, agent or excluded employee; and
(3) the amount claimed is an actual loss to the state officer, agent or excluded employee, and is not recoverable directly from or through the insurance coverage of any party involved in the accident; and
(4) the loss claimed does not result from a decision of a state officer, agent or excluded employee not to maintain collision coverage; and
(5) the claim is processed in accordance with the procedures prescribed by the Department.
(g) Specialized Vehicles. An employee with a physical disability who must operate a motor vehicle on official state business and who can operate only specially equipped or modified vehicles may claim a rate of 34 cents per mile without certification and up to 37 cents per mile with certification. Where travel is authorized to and from a common carrier terminal, as specified in section 599.631(b) of these regulations the employee may compute the mileage as defined in section 599.631(b) of these regulations. Supervisors approving these claims must determine the employee's need for the use of such vehicles.
