It's Time To Put Your Odometer Reading Into MileIQ

Marin Perez

As New Year's Day rolls around, it's time for you to recover and plan for 2019. One of the best things to do is to get the most out of your miles in 2019. That all starts with recording your odometer reading into MileIQ.  

Why Do I Need My Odometer Reading?

If you want to take the mileage deduction, you'll need detailed records of your drives. This includes recording your 2018 ending odometer reading and your 2019 starting reading (this should be the same number). You'll need this information when claiming your deduction on your Schedule C.

How To Get The Most Out Of My Miles In 2019

Remember to track all your miles for the year. Every business mile can lead to an increased mileage deduction, which can potentially lower the amount of taxes you'll owe.  You can lean on a mileage-tracking app like MileIQ to automatically track your miles in the background. You can just drive like you normally would and MileIQ will create a mileage log for you.  

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
