Volunteer Mileage Rate & Reimbursement

For a volunteer to properly document their mileage, they must:

  1. Keep a mileage log of the miles driven to the meeting or church activity they attended, and
  2. Obtain the minutes of the meeting or church activity they attended.

If volunteers attend a non-meeting event, they can request an attendance thank you letter from the event coordinator. This thank you will serve to verify their attendance.

The IRS mileage rate for volunteers driving for church business is 26.2 cents per mile.
