Can I deduct my moving expenses?

SOLVEDby TurboTax4581Updated January 24, 2022

If you’re active-duty military and were ordered to move as the result of a PCS (permanent change of station), you can deduct your out-of-pocket moving expenses to your new post, including travel and lodging (but not meals). You can't deduct moving expenses for which you were reimbursed, nor can you deduct moving expenses that were paid for by the government.

For everybody else, the moving expense deduction has been suspended for tax years 2018 through 2025 because of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was signed into law in late December of 2017.

Before the suspension, full-time employees who worked at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months at their new job location could deduct moving expenses that were paid within one year of the date they first reported to work at their new workplace, provided the distance between their old home and new workplace was at least 50 miles further than it was from the old workplace.
