Taxable Relocation Repayment

Hi,

 

In 2022 I received taxable relocation assistance of $38k, with a 2-year retention clause. I am taking a new position and will have to repay $10k in 2023. How should I treat this on my taxes? Do I file an amended tax return for 2022, and request an amended W2? Is there a mechanism for reducing my taxable income in the current year for the same amount?

 

Thanks!

Taxable Relocation Repayment

You don't need to amend your 2022 tax return or request a corrected W-2.

 

This is a claim of right repayment. You can only report it in the year you actually repaid the claim (on your 2023 tax return).

 

If your repayment is less than $3,000, you'll claim it as a Miscellaneous itemized deduction in Schedule A.

 

If the repayment is more than $3,000, please read this TurboTax Help topic on how to make the claim.
