Unfortunately, the moving expense deduction is no longer available in tax years 2018 – 2025 due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) that Congress signed into law on December 22, 2017.

To qualify for this deduction as a full-time employee, you'll need to work at the new location for at least 39 weeks in the 12-month period, once you've arrived in your new city. …."

If you are not active duty military, you can, unfortunately, no longer claim moving expenses due to the changes in the tax law.
