Consumer brief (12/05/2007)
* SAN FRANCISCO (12/6/07)--High gasoline prices are pushing the standard Internal Revenue Service (IRS) mileage-rate deduction for business-related driving to a new all-time high in 2008: 50.5 cents a mile, up from 48.5 cents in 2007. Other variables affecting the rate increase include vehicle maintenance, repairs, registration and insurance. Remember that the standard mileage deduction only is for companies using four or fewer vehicles; other companies use the IRS standard as a benchmark to set their own reimbursement rates. If you plan to claim a deduction for medical or moving expenses, the rate--calculated differently than the rate for business driving--will drop to 19 cents a mile, from 20 cents a mile in 2007.
