Effective January 15, 2013 all judges, employees, and jurors were eligible to claim the increase mileage rates for automobiles, motorcycles, and airplanes for travel performed on or after January 1, 2013:
Automobiles: $0.565 per mile
Motorcycles: $0.535 per mile
Airplanes: $1.35 per mile
There may have been a discrepancy between the rate paid for mileage reimbursement and what was actually owed a claimant for the January 1 - 14, 2013, time period. Parties requesting reimbursement at the additional mileage rate for the January 1-14, 2013, time period should complete a claim for reimbursement of the difference of the amount owed compared to the amount originally paid on an authorized travel voucher form, which can be found on the forms page of the J-Net Travel site or from the clerk's office. This claim must be filed with your local finance office within 60 days of the date of this notice.
