Moving Expense Reduction without proofs

Hi, I am trying to collect credits from moving expense deduction but I could not find all the recipts/invoice for my moving expense especially the major. Should I still file it and explain to IRS in case they contacted for details? or should I not file it at all since I can not provide proofs for certain expenses? I am just a little bit worried about any potential tax fraud issue here. Thanks a lot!

Moving Expense Reduction without proofs

I would not enter expenses related to the moving expense deduction if I did not have the receipts and/or invoices to backup my deduction. If IRS contacted you for documentation related to the moving expense deduction, and you had no documentation to give them, you would be assessed tax, penalties, and interest.

If you used a moving company or rented a truck you can contact the company to request a receipt. Did you pay for any of the expenses by credit card? You may be able to use your credit card statements to help re-create your moving expenses.
