Mileage Reimbursement Rate 56 cents

The standard business mileage reimbursement rate changed to 57.5 cents on January 1, 2021. Any mileage incurred for business purposes after January 1 will be reimbursed according to this new rate. A form with the new rate will be available on the BOCES website. Likewise, the IRS rate for medical purposes will change to 16 cents per mile on January 1. Please use this new rate for mileage reimbursement through the Flex Plan. Mileage and Expense Voucher 

Staff are encouraged to use electronic forms to submit mileage reimbursement requests, if they are not doing so already. Completing the form electronically alleviates mathematical errors and “legibility” issues. As always, expense vouchers must be received by the business office within 90 days of occurrence, or by June 30, whichever comes first.  


New: Omni Updates

A quarterly newsletter from Omni is now available on the Forms section of our website, under Retirement. Omni is the company MOBOCES uses for 403(b) and 457 plans.


Flex Spending Plan

October 1st is the start of the plan year for the flexible spending plan. The flexible spending plan is a way to set aside funds from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis to pay for eligible dependent care and un-reimbursed medical expenses.

For the 2019-2020 plan year only, the plan year ended December 31, 2020 and all claims will be due by February 28, 2021. Please contact Cheryl Fleming in the business office at 315-361-5513 with questions.


FYI **Paydays will be moving to Thursdays in the 2021-22 school year.**
