Consistent with recently issued Internal Revenue Service guidance, Baylor's daily meal per diem and the standard mileage rate for the use of personal automobiles on authorized University trips has changed to:

  • $55 daily meal per diem for domestic travel (including breakfast $13; lunch $14; dinner $23; incidental expenses $5), and
  • 58.0 cents per mile for business miles driven.

The new rates are applicable to travel incurred on or after January 1, 2019.

Information on the meal per diem and mileage rate table can be found on Baylor's Travel and Entertainment Policies and Procedures website.

Please inform your faculty and/or staff of the revised reimbursement rate on authorized University trips.
