Jury Duty Pay by State 2024

Jury Duty Pay by State 2024

Jury duty. It is both an honor and an obligation as a citizen of the US. Do you ever wonder though, what the jury duty pay in each state in 2022 or 2021 is? Don't get your hopes up because it isn't much, but it also isn't something we should necessarily expect either.

Legally, that means that it isn't honestly necessary to get paid for jury duty, and there is no legal requirement, so it is nice that most states do - because some states don't. Here is a look at the jury duty pay in each state.

Jury duty is both an honor and an obligation as a citizen of the U.S. Do you ever wonder what the jury duty pay in your state is? Don't get your hopes up because it isn't much, but it isn't something we should necessarily expect.

Legally, that means that it isn't honestly necessary to get paid for jury duty, and there is no legal requirement, so it is nice that most states do - because some states don't. Jury duty pay can be given in two ways: by a daily rate and mileage reimbursement. Some states offer only a daily rate, while others cover the costs of reimbursing the travel costs associated with getting to your jury duty assignment.

In addition to these payments, states often also cover the cost of hotels for out-of-town trials, parking fees, and other costs related to serving on a jury.

Daily Rates by State

Most states do provide a daily payment to those serving jury duty. Illinois and South Carolina are the only states that do not. Five states pay less than ten dollars per day. These states are Mississippi ($5.00), New Jersey ($5.00), Missouri ($6.00), Texas ($6.00), and New Mexico ($7.50).

The highest daily juror rate is $50 per day. Six states offer this payment: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, and South Dakota.

Mileage Reimbursement Rates

Over half of the states (27) do not offer mileage reimbursement for the travel costs of jurors and potential jurors. Seven states provide a federal mileage rate of $0.0535 per mile. The rest of the states have mileage reimbursement rates that range from $0.07 per mile to $2 per mile.

Only one state and the District of Columbia have mileage reimbursement rates above $1. Utah offers $1 per mile, and the District of Columbia provides $2 per mile.
