Moving Expenses

Money that one spends in the course of moving to start a new job or because of a transfer in one's current job. In the United States, one may deduct moving expenses from one's taxable income, after certain thresholds are met with regard to time and distance. 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.

Moving Expenses
