The current reimbursement rates for mileage, lodging, and meals are available through the Arizona Department of Administration’s (ADOA) website as part of the State of Arizona Accounting Manual (SAAM) Topic 50—Travel, Section 95—Reimbursement Rates.
The current and previous personal vehicle mileage reimbursement rates are:
Effective on 1/9/2023: 62.5¢
Effective through 1/8/2023: 44.5¢
To use the lodging, meal, and incidental reimbursement rates table, first locate the state to which the employee will travel. If the specific city is listed, the city’s rates apply. If the city is not listed, refer to the county in which the city is located. For specific city and county rates, determine the rate that is effective for the time period the employee will travel, if applicable. If the city and county are not listed, use the default State rates. The current and previous default Arizona rates are:
Effective on 1/9/2023
|Meals & Incidentals|| $49.00|
Effective through 1/8/2023
|Meals & Incidentals|| $45.00|
For lodging rates, travelers may be reimbursed for taxes and other charges imposed by the applicable government authority, in addition to amounts shown in the SAAM. Meal & Incidental (M&I) reimbursements include the actual amount spent, not to exceed the maximum reimbursement amounts. If a traveler does not purchase a meal, if a meal is provided on a complimentary basis, or the cost of the meal is imbedded in another cost, the traveler is not entitled to reimbursement for that meal. Guidance on meals and incidental expenses can be found at SAAM Topic 50—Travel, Section 25—Meals and Incidentals.
