Per state law, ND state employees may be reimbursed a maximum of ninety percent of the GSA rate for lodging in North Dakota plus applicable state and local taxes. As of October 1, 2019, the GSA rate for lodging in ND will be $96, therefore the maximum amount that can be claimed is $86.40 plus applicable taxes ($96 x 90% = $86.40). The GSA will update their rates periodically during the biennium and the allowable lodging reimbursement will also change at that time.
