IRS increased tax rates mid year in 2011 to assist small biz owners

Ashlea Ebeling blogged about the new tax advantage for small business owners that goes into effect July 1, 2011.  http://blogs.forbes.com/ashleaebeling/2011/06/24/irs-helps-taxpayers-with-high-gas-prices/

The mileage rate for business purposes is 55.5 cents a mile, up from 51 cents a mile during the first half of 2011. The mileage rate for medical and moving expenses is 23.5 cents a mile, up from 19 cents a mile during the first half of 2011. The last time the IRS put in a mid-year increase was in 2008, when the business mileage rates went from 50.5 cents a mile to 58.5 cents a mile, and the rate for medical and moving purposes went from 19 cents a mile to 27 cents a mile.
