The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts recently implemented the Rental Car vs. Mileage Reimbursement Calculator that helps employees make informed and fiscally sound decisions regarding vehicle travel when conducting state business. This resource is available in the right feature column of Textravel (FPP G.005). The electronic tool considers a combination of factors and performs a cost comparison between renting a vehicle and receiving reimbursement for using a personal vehicle in business travel. To conserve state funds, travelers should consider all relevant circumstances and use this new resource to determine the best transportation option.
