Moving Expense Deduction

Moving Expense Deduction

A reduction in one's taxable income because of money spent in the course of moving to start a new job or to transfer in one's current job. This deduction is subject to certain restrictions. Specifically, only expenses incurred from the physical act of moving are deductible. For example, meals taken while traveling are not deductible, but the cost of gasoline may be.
