Deductions & credits

You are correct, you can deduct the cost to disconnect or connect utilities at your old and new homes. You can put them in "Transporting your Household Goods" or "storing" data entry... this TurboTax screen is only a worksheet that is not sent to the IRS. All moving expenses are totaled together and deducted as one amount for tax purposes anyway.

As to the rent fees...they are not allowed as moving expenses per IRS, it includes admin. fees, cost of breaking/entering into lease, deposits...
