Witness Fees – Witness Mileage
The Federal witness fee rate is currently $40.00 + 56 ½ cents per mile in both directions. As you know, this fee must be tendered at the time of service (Federal subpoenas only) for the service to be valid.
Beginning January 1st, 2014 the mileage rate portion has decreased from 56 ½ cents per mile both ways to 56 cents per mile both ways. So the 2014 Federal witness fee will be $40.00 + 56 cents per mile in both directions.
There has been no change to the state witness fee which remains at $35.00 + 20 cents per mile in both directions for 2014.
