Moving can be expensive, but the IRS offers tips on deducting expenses if the move is related to starting a new job or a new job location. The move must meet a time test and a distance test , and taxpayers generally can consider moving expenses incurred within one year from the date they first report to a new location as closely related in time to the start of work. Taxpayers can deduct (1) lodging expenses for themselves and household members; (2) transportation expenses, including airfare, vehicle mileage, parking fees and tolls, limited to one trip per person; (3) the cost of packing, crating and transporting household goods and personal property; and (4) the cost of connecting or disconnecting utilities.
