Reading the Bible

"There's usually something going on just below the surface of the Bible.  So you read it carefully.  You pay attention to the weird bits.  You notice the details.  You fly close to the surface, sometimes you fly higher.  Sometimes just one word unlocks something amazing, other times the bang comes when you read it from a much higher altitude."      
- Rob Bell, What is the Bible?

2019 Standard Mileage Rates

IRS issues standard mileage rates for 2019
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today issued the 2019 optional standard mileage rates used to calculate the deductible costs of operating an automobile for business, charitable, medical or moving purposes.
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2019, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:
  • 58 cents per mile driven for business use, up 3.5 cents from the rate for 2018,
  • 20 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, up 2 cents from the rate for 2018, and
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations.
The business mileage rate increased 3.5 cents for business travel driven and 2 cents for medical and certain moving expense from the rates for 2018. The charitable rate is set by statute and remains unchanged.
