You will need to report that you moved in 2017 in order to enter the corresponding expenses into the program, but you can list the same city that you live in now (Form 3903 does not list the cities involved) to eliminate the program from offering a second state return, or use the original city and allocate zero income to that state.
According to the IRS:
“If you are reimbursed for your expenses and you use the cash method of accounting, you can deduct your expenses either in the year you paid them or in the year you received the reimbursement. If you use the cash method of accounting, you can choose to deduct the expenses in the year you are reimbursed even though you paid the expenses in a different year. See next. Choosing when to deduct
If you deduct your expenses and you receive the reimbursement in a later year, you must include the reimbursement in your income on Form 1040, line 21.
Choosing when to deduct.
- You paid the expenses in a year before the year of reimbursement, or
- You paid the expenses in the year immediately after the year of reimbursement but by the due date, including extensions, for filing your return for the reimbursement year.
