CWSC reimburses volunteers under an Accountable Institution Plan pursuant to IRS regulations for out-of-pocket expenses for official performance of duties.

Out-of-pocket expenses CWSC might reimburse include:

– travel to and from the place of volunteering.
– postage, copying, and similar administrative costs.
– attendance at officially assigned events.
– long distance travel, meals, and lodging while conducting official business.

CWSC uses per diem rates for meals and lodging and incidentals such as taxis based on federal per diem rates and/or the U.S. General Accountability Office (GAO) sets an annual mileage reimbursement rate. Use of the mentioned rate guidelines limits administrative burden for CWSC and minimizes taxes for volunteers receiving reimbursement for expenses.

Advanced requests for funds in anticipation of expense may be authorized up to 30-days in advance. Any amounts advanced in excess of actual incurred expense is to be refunded back to CWSC within 90-days.
