H and r block free state file Your move is closely related to the start of work. H and r block free state file You meet the distance test. H and r block free state file You meet the time test. H and r block free state file After you have read these rules, you may want to use Figure B to help you decide if you can deduct your moving expenses. H and r block free state file Retirees, survivors, and Armed Forces members. H and r block free state file   Different rules may apply if you are a member of the Armed Forces or a retiree or survivor moving to the United States. H and r block free state file These rules are discussed later in this publication. H and r block free state file Move Related to Start of Work Your move must be closely related, both in time and in place, to the start of work at your new job location. H and r block free state file Closely related in time. H and r block free state file   In most cases, you can consider moving expenses incurred within 1 year from the date you first reported to work at the new location as closely related in time to the start of work. H and r block free state file It is not necessary that you arrange to work before moving to a new location, as long as you actually go to work in that location. H and r block free state file    Figure A. H and r block free state file Illustration of Distance Test Please click here for the text description of the image. H and r block free state file Figure A   If you do not move within 1 year of the date you begin work, you ordinarily cannot deduct the expenses unless you can show that circumstances existed that prevented the move within that time. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file Your family moved more than a year after you started work at a new location. H and r block free state file You delayed the move for 18 months to allow your child to complete high school. H and r block free state file You can deduct your moving expenses. H and r block free state file Closely related in place. H and r block free state file   You can generally consider your move closely related in place to the start of work if the distance from your new home to the new job location is not more than the distance from your former home to the new job location. H and r block free state file If your move does not meet this requirement, you may still be able to deduct moving expenses if you can show that: You are required to live at your new home as a condition of your employment, or You will spend less time or money commuting from your new home to your new job location. H and r block free state file Home defined. H and r block free state file   Your home means your main home (residence). H and r block free state file It can be a house, apartment, condominium, houseboat, house trailer, or similar dwelling. H and r block free state file It does not include other homes owned or kept up by you or members of your family. H and r block free state file It also does not include a seasonal home, such as a summer beach cottage. H and r block free state file Your former home means your home before you left for your new job location. H and r block free state file Your new home means your home within the area of your new job location. H and r block free state file Retirees or survivors. H and r block free state file   You may be able to deduct the expenses of moving to the United States or its possessions even though the move is not related to the start of work at a new job location. H and r block free state file You must have worked outside the United States or be a survivor of someone who did. H and r block free state file See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. H and r block free state file Distance Test Your move will meet the distance test if your new main job location is at least 50 miles farther from your former home than your old main job location was from your former home. H and r block free state file For example, if your old main job location was 3 miles from your former home, your new main job location must be at least 53 miles from that former home. H and r block free state file You can use Worksheet 1 to see if you meet this test. H and r block free state file Worksheet 1. H and r block free state file Distance Test   Note. H and r block free state file Members of the Armed Forces may not have to meet this test. H and r block free state file See Members of the Armed Forces. H and r block free state file     1. H and r block free state file Enter the number of miles from your old home to your new workplace 1. H and r block free state file miles 2. H and r block free state file Enter the number of miles from your old home to your old workplace 2. H and r block free state file miles 3. H and r block free state file Subtract line 2 from line 1. H and r block free state file If zero or less, enter -0- 3. H and r block free state file miles 4. H and r block free state file Is line 3 at least 50 miles? □ Yes. H and r block free state file You meet this test. H and r block free state file  □ No. H and r block free state file You do not meet this test. H and r block free state file You cannot deduct your moving expenses. H and r block free state file The distance between a job location and your home is the shortest of the more commonly traveled routes between them. H and r block free state file The distance test considers only the location of your former home. H and r block free state file It does not take into account the location of your new home. H and r block free state file See Figure A, earlier. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file You moved to a new home less than 50 miles from your former home because you changed main job locations. H and r block free state file Your old main job location was 3 miles from your former home. H and r block free state file Your new main job location is 60 miles from that home. H and r block free state file Because your new main job location is 57 miles farther from your former home than the distance from your former home to your old main job location, you meet the distance test. H and r block free state file First job or return to full-time work. H and r block free state file   If you go to work full time for the first time, your place of work must be at least 50 miles from your former home to meet the distance test. H and r block free state file   If you go back to full-time work after a substantial period of part-time work or unemployment, your place of work also must be at least 50 miles from your former home. H and r block free state file Armed Forces. H and r block free state file   If you are in the Armed Forces and you moved because of a permanent change of station, you do not have to meet the distance test. H and r block free state file See Members of the Armed Forces, later. H and r block free state file Main job location. H and r block free state file   Your main job location is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. H and r block free state file This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. H and r block free state file If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. H and r block free state file Union members. H and r block free state file   If you work for several employers on a short-term basis and you get work under a union hall system (such as a construction or building trades worker), your main job location is the union hall. H and r block free state file More than one job. H and r block free state file   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. H and r block free state file The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. H and r block free state file    Table 1. H and r block free state file Satisfying the Time Test for Employees and Self-Employed Persons IF you are. H and r block free state file . H and r block free state file . H and r block free state file THEN you satisfy the time test by meeting the. H and r block free state file . H and r block free state file . H and r block free state file an employee 39-week test for employees. H and r block free state file self-employed 78-week test for self-employed persons. H and r block free state file both self-employed and an employee at the same time 78-week test for a self-employed person or the 39-week  test for an employee. H and r block free state file Your principal place of work  determines which test applies. H and r block free state file both self-employed and an employee, but unable to satisfy the 39-week test for employees 78-week test for self-employed persons. H and r block free state file Time Test To deduct your moving expenses, you also must meet one of the following two time tests. H and r block free state file The time test for employees. H and r block free state file The time test for self-employed persons. H and r block free state file Both of these tests are explained below. H and r block free state file See Table 1, below, for a summary of these tests. H and r block free state file You can deduct your moving expenses before you meet either of the time tests. H and r block free state file See Time Test Not Yet Met, later. H and r block free state file Time Test for Employees If you are an employee, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (39-week test). H and r block free state file Full-time employment depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. H and r block free state file For purposes of this test, the following four rules apply. H and r block free state file You count only your full-time work as an employee, not any work you do as a self-employed person. H and r block free state file You do not have to work for the same employer for all 39 weeks. H and r block free state file You do not have to work 39 weeks in a row. H and r block free state file You must work full time within the same general commuting area for all 39 weeks. H and r block free state file Temporary absence from work. H and r block free state file   You are considered to have worked full time during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, lockouts, layoffs, natural disasters, or similar causes. H and r block free state file You are also considered to have worked full time during any week you are absent from work for leave or vacation provided for in your work contract or agreement. H and r block free state file Seasonal work. H and r block free state file   If your work is seasonal, you are considered to be working full time during the off-season only if your work contract or agreement covers an off-season period of less than 6 months. H and r block free state file For example, a school teacher on a 12-month contract who teaches on a full-time basis for more than 6 months is considered to have worked full time for the entire 12 months. H and r block free state file    Figure B. H and r block free state file Can You Deduct Expenses for a Non-Military Move Within the United States? Please click here for the text description of the image. H and r block free state file Figure B Time Test for Self-Employed Persons If you are self-employed, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months and for a total of at least 78 weeks during the first 24 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (78-week test). H and r block free state file For purposes of the time test for self-employed persons, the following three rules apply. H and r block free state file You count any full-time work you do either as an employee or as a self-employed person. H and r block free state file You do not have to work for the same employer or be self-employed in the same trade or business for the 78 weeks. H and r block free state file You must work within the same general commuting area for all 78 weeks. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file You are a self-employed accountant who moves from Atlanta to New York City, and begin to work there on December 1, 2013. H and r block free state file You pay moving expenses in 2013 and 2014 in connection with this move. H and r block free state file On April 15, 2014, when you file your income tax return for the year 2013, you have been performing services as a self-employed individual on a full-time basis in New York City for approximately 20 weeks. H and r block free state file Although you have not satisfied the 78-week employment condition at this time, you can deduct your 2013 moving expenses on your 2013 income tax return as there is still sufficient time remaining before December 1, 2015, to satisfy such condition. H and r block free state file You can deduct any moving expenses you pay in 2014 on your 2014 income tax return even if you have not met the 78-week test. H and r block free state file You have until December 1, 2015, to satisfy this requirement. H and r block free state file Self-employment. H and r block free state file   You are self-employed if you work as the sole owner of an unincorporated business or as a partner in a partnership carrying on a business. H and r block free state file You are not considered self-employed if you are semi-retired, are a part-time student, or work only a few hours each week. H and r block free state file Full-time work. H and r block free state file   You can count only those weeks during which you work full time as a week of work. H and r block free state file Whether you work full time during any week depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. H and r block free state file For example, you are a self-employed dentist and maintain office hours 4 days a week. H and r block free state file You are considered to perform services full time if maintaining office hours 4 days a week is not unusual for other self-employed dentists in your area. H and r block free state file Temporary absence from work. H and r block free state file   You are considered to be self-employed on a full-time basis during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, natural disasters, or similar causes. H and r block free state file Seasonal trade or business. H and r block free state file   If your trade or business is seasonal, the off-season weeks when no work is required or available may be counted as weeks during which you worked full time. H and r block free state file The off-season must be less than 6 months and you must work full time before and after the off-season. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file You own and operate a motel at a beach resort. H and r block free state file The motel is closed for 5 months during the off-season. H and r block free state file You work full time as the operator of the motel before and after the off-season. H and r block free state file You are considered self-employed on a full-time basis during the weeks of the off-season. H and r block free state file   If you were both an employee and self-employed, see Table 1 earlier, for the requirements. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file Justin quit his job and moved from the east coast to the west coast to begin a full-time job as a cabinet-maker for C and L Cabinet Shop. H and r block free state file He generally worked at the shop about 40 hours each week. H and r block free state file Shortly after the move, Justin also began operating a cabinet-installation business from his home for several hours each afternoon and all day on weekends. H and r block free state file Because Justin's principal place of business is the cabinet shop, he can satisfy the time test by meeting the 39-week test. H and r block free state file    If Justin is unable to satisfy the requirements of the 39-week test during the 12-month period immediately following his arrival in the general location of his new principal place of work, he can satisfy the 78-week test. H and r block free state file Joint Return If you are married, file a joint return, and both you and your spouse work full-time, either of you can satisfy the full-time work test. H and r block free state file However, you cannot add the weeks your spouse worked to the weeks you worked to satisfy that test. H and r block free state file Time Test Not Yet Met You can deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 tax return even though you have not met the time test by the date your 2013 return is due. H and r block free state file You can do this if you expect to meet the 39-week test in 2014 or the 78-week test in 2014 or 2015. H and r block free state file If you do not deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, and you later meet the time test, you can file an amended return for 2013 to take the deduction. H and r block free state file See When To Deduct Expenses later, for more details. H and r block free state file Failure to meet the time test. H and r block free state file    If you deduct moving expenses but do not meet the time test in 2014 or 2015, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for the year you cannot meet the test, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file You arrive in the general area of your new job location, as an employee, on September 15, 2013. H and r block free state file You deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, the year of the move, even though you have not yet met the time test by the date your return is due. H and r block free state file If you do not meet the 39-week test during the 12-month period following your arrival in the general area of your new job location, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for 2014, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. H and r block free state file Exceptions to the Time Test You do not have to meet the time test if one of the following applies. H and r block free state file You are in the Armed Forces and you moved because of a permanent change of station. H and r block free state file See Members of the Armed Forces , later. H and r block free state file Your main job location was outside the United States and you moved to the United States because you retired. H and r block free state file See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. H and r block free state file You are the survivor of a person whose main job location at the time of death was outside the United States. H and r block free state file See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. H and r block free state file Your job at the new location ends because of death or disability. H and r block free state file You are transferred for your employer's benefit or laid off for a reason other than willful misconduct. H and r block free state file For this exception, you must have obtained full-time employment and you must have expected to meet the test at the time you started the job. H and r block free state file Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States If you are a retiree who was working abroad or a survivor of a decedent who was working abroad and you move to the United States or one of its possessions, you do not have to meet the time test, discussed earlier. H and r block free state file However, you must meet the requirements discussed below under Retirees who were working abroad or Survivors of decedents who were working abroad. H and r block free state file If you are living in the United States, retire, and then move and remain retired, you cannot claim a moving expense deduction for that move. H and r block free state file United States defined. H and r block free state file   For this section of this publication, the term “United States” includes the possessions of the United States. H and r block free state file Retirees who were working abroad. H and r block free state file   You can deduct moving expenses for a move to a new home in the United States when you permanently retire. H and r block free state file However, both your former main job location and your former home must have been outside the United States. H and r block free state file Permanently retired. H and r block free state file   You are considered permanently retired when you cease gainful full-time employment or self-employment. H and r block free state file If, at the time you retire, you intend your retirement to be permanent, you will be considered retired even though you later return to work. H and r block free state file Your intention to retire permanently may be determined by: Your age and health, The customary retirement age for people who do similar work, Whether you receive retirement payments from a pension or retirement fund, and The length of time before you return to full-time work. H and r block free state file Decedents. H and r block free state file   Qualified deductible moving expenses are allowed on a final return (Form 1040 or 1040NR) when a taxpayer has moved and dies within the same calendar year. H and r block free state file The personal representative filing on behalf of that taxpayer should complete and attach Form 3903 to the final return. H and r block free state file   A personal representative can be an executor, administrator, or anyone who is in charge of the deceased person's property. H and r block free state file For more information, see Publication 559, Survivors, Executors, and Administrators. H and r block free state file Survivors of decedents who were working abroad. H and r block free state file   If you are the spouse or the dependent of a person whose main job location at the time of death was outside the United States, you can deduct moving expenses if the following five requirements are met. H and r block free state file The move is to a home in the United States. H and r block free state file The move begins within 6 months after the decedent's death. H and r block free state file (When a move begins is described below. H and r block free state file ) The move is from the decedent's former home. H and r block free state file The decedent's former home was outside the United States. H and r block free state file The decedent's former home was also your home. H and r block free state file When a move begins. H and r block free state file   A move begins when one of the following events occurs. H and r block free state file You contract for your household goods and personal effects to be moved to your home in the United States, but only if the move is completed within a reasonable time. H and r block free state file Your household goods and personal effects are packed and on the way to your home in the United States. H and r block free state file You leave your former home to travel to your new home in the United States. H and r block free state file Deductible Moving Expenses If you meet the requirements discussed earlier under Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses, you can deduct the reasonable expenses of: Moving your household goods and personal effects (including in-transit or foreign-move storage expenses), and Traveling (including lodging but not meals) to your new home. H and r block free state file You cannot deduct any expenses for meals. H and r block free state file Reasonable expenses. H and r block free state file   You can deduct only those expenses that are reasonable for the circumstances of your move. H and r block free state file For example, the cost of traveling from your former home to your new one should be by the shortest, most direct route available by conventional transportation. H and r block free state file If during your trip to your new home, you stop over, or make side trips for sightseeing, the additional expenses for your stopover or side trips are not deductible as moving expenses. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file Beth's employer transferred her from Boston, Massachusetts, to Buffalo, New York. H and r block free state file On her way to Buffalo, Beth drove into Canada to visit the Toronto Zoo. H and r block free state file Since Beth's excursion into Canada was away from the usual Boston-Buffalo route, the expenses paid or incurred for the excursion are not deductible. H and r block free state file Beth can only deduct what it would have cost to drive directly from Boston to Buffalo. H and r block free state file Likewise, Beth cannot deduct any expenses, such as the cost of a hotel room, caused by the delay for sightseeing. H and r block free state file Travel by car. H and r block free state file   If you use your car to take yourself, members of your household, or your personal effects to your new home, you can figure your expenses by deducting either: Your actual expenses, such as the amount you pay for gas and oil for your car, if you keep an accurate record of each expense, or The standard mileage rate of 24 cents per mile. H and r block free state file Whether you use actual expenses or the standard mileage rate to figure your expenses, you can deduct the parking fees and tolls you pay to move. H and r block free state file You cannot deduct any part of general repairs, general maintenance, insurance, or depreciation for your car. H and r block free state file Member of your household. H and r block free state file   You can deduct moving expenses you pay for yourself and members of your household. H and r block free state file A member of your household is anyone who has both your former and new home as his or her home. H and r block free state file It does not include a tenant or employee, unless that person is your dependent. H and r block free state file Moves to Locations in the United States If you meet the requirements under Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses, earlier, you can deduct expenses for a move to the area of a new main job location within the United States or its possessions. H and r block free state file Your move may be from one U. H and r block free state file S. H and r block free state file location to another or from a foreign country to the United States. H and r block free state file Household goods and personal effects. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the cost of packing, crating, and transporting your household goods and personal effects and those of the members of your household from your former home to your new home. H and r block free state file For purposes of moving expenses, the term “personal effects” includes, but is not limited to, movable personal property that the taxpayer owns and frequently uses. H and r block free state file   If you use your own car to move your things, see Travel by car, earlier. H and r block free state file   You can deduct any costs of connecting or disconnecting utilities required because you are moving your household goods, appliances, or personal effects. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the cost of shipping your car and your household pets to your new home. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the cost of moving your household goods and personal effects from a place other than your former home. H and r block free state file Your deduction is limited to the amount it would have cost to move them from your former home. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file Paul Brown has been living and working in North Carolina for the last 4 years. H and r block free state file Because he has been renting a small apartment, he stored some furniture at his parents' home in Georgia. H and r block free state file Paul got a job in Washington, DC. H and r block free state file It cost him $900 to move the furniture from his North Carolina apartment to Washington and $3,000 to move the stored furniture from Georgia to Washington. H and r block free state file It would have cost $1,800 to ship the stored furniture from North Carolina to Washington. H and r block free state file He can deduct only $1,800 of the $3,000 he paid. H and r block free state file The amount he can deduct for moving his furniture is $2,700 ($900 + $1,800). H and r block free state file You cannot deduct the cost of moving furniture you buy on the way to your new home. H and r block free state file   Storage expenses. H and r block free state file   You can include the cost of storing and insuring household goods and personal effects within any period of 30 consecutive days after the day your things are moved from your former home and before they are delivered to your new home. H and r block free state file Travel expenses. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the cost of transportation and lodging for yourself and members of your household while traveling from your former home to your new home. H and r block free state file This includes expenses for the day you arrive. H and r block free state file    The day of arrival is the day you secure lodging at the new place of residence, even if the lodging is on a temporary basis. H and r block free state file   You can include any lodging expenses you had in the area of your former home within one day after you could no longer live in your former home because your furniture had been moved. H and r block free state file   The members of your household do not have to travel together or at the same time. H and r block free state file However, you can only deduct expenses for one trip per person. H and r block free state file If you use your own car, see Travel by car, earlier. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file   In February 2013, Josh and Robyn Black moved from Minneapolis to Washington, DC, where Josh was starting a new job. H and r block free state file Josh drove the family car to Washington, DC, a trip of 1,100 miles. H and r block free state file His expenses were $264. H and r block free state file 00 for mileage (1,100 miles x 24 cents per mile) plus $40 for tolls and $150 for lodging, for a total of $454. H and r block free state file 00. H and r block free state file One week later, Robyn flew from Minneapolis to Washington, DC. H and r block free state file Her only expense was her $400 plane ticket. H and r block free state file The Blacks' deduction is $854. H and r block free state file 00 (Josh's $454. H and r block free state file 00 + Robyn's $400). H and r block free state file Moves to Locations Outside the United States To deduct expenses for a move outside the United States, you must move to the area of a new place of work outside the United States and its possessions. H and r block free state file You must meet the requirements under Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses , earlier. H and r block free state file Deductible expenses. H and r block free state file   If your move is to a location outside the United States and its possessions, you can deduct the following expenses. H and r block free state file The cost of moving household goods and personal effects from your former home to your new home. H and r block free state file The cost of traveling (including lodging) from your former home to your new home. H and r block free state file The cost of moving household goods and personal effects to and from storage. H and r block free state file The cost of storing household goods and personal effects while you are at the new job location. H and r block free state file The first two items were explained earlier under Moves to Locations in the United States . H and r block free state file The last two items are discussed, later. H and r block free state file Moving goods and effects to and from storage. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the reasonable expenses of moving your personal effects to and from storage. H and r block free state file Storage expenses. H and r block free state file   You can deduct the reasonable expenses of storing your household goods and personal effects for all or part of the time the new job location remains your main job location. H and r block free state file Moving expenses allocable to excluded foreign income. H and r block free state file   If you live and work outside the United States, you may be able to exclude from income part or all of the income you earn in the foreign country. H and r block free state file You may also be able to claim a foreign housing exclusion or deduction. H and r block free state file If you claim the foreign earned income or foreign housing exclusion, you cannot deduct the part of your moving expenses that relates to the excluded income. H and r block free state file    Publication 54, Tax Guide for U. H and r block free state file S. H and r block free state file Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad, explains how to figure the part of your moving expenses that relates to excluded income. H and r block free state file You can get the publication from most U. H and r block free state file S. H and r block free state file embassies and consulates, or see How To Get Tax Help at the end of this publication. H and r block free state file Nondeductible Expenses You cannot deduct the following items as moving expenses. H and r block free state file Any part of the purchase price of your new home. H and r block free state file Car tags. H and r block free state file Driver's license. H and r block free state file Expenses of buying or selling a home (including closing costs, mortgage fees, and points). H and r block free state file Expenses of entering into or breaking a lease. H and r block free state file Home improvements to help sell your home. H and r block free state file Loss on the sale of your home. H and r block free state file Losses from disposing of memberships in clubs. H and r block free state file Mortgage penalties. H and r block free state file Pre-move househunting expenses. H and r block free state file Real estate taxes. H and r block free state file Refitting of carpet and draperies. H and r block free state file Return trips to your former residence. H and r block free state file Security deposits (including any given up due to the move). H and r block free state file Storage charges except those incurred in transit and for foreign moves. H and r block free state file No double deduction. H and r block free state file   You cannot take a moving expense deduction and a business expense deduction for the same expenses. H and r block free state file You must decide if your expenses are deductible as moving expenses or as business expenses. H and r block free state file For example, expenses you have for travel, meals, and lodging while temporarily working at a place away from your regular place of work may be deductible as business expenses if you are considered away from home on business. H and r block free state file In most cases, your work at a single location is considered temporary if it is realistically expected to last (and does in fact last) for one year or less. H and r block free state file   See Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses, for information on deducting your business expenses. H and r block free state file Reimbursements This section explains how to report a reimbursement (including advances and allowances) on your tax return. H and r block free state file It covers reimbursements for any of your moving expenses discussed in this publication. H and r block free state file It also explains the types of reimbursements on which your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. H and r block free state file Types of Reimbursement Plans If you receive a reimbursement for your moving expenses, how you report this amount and your expenses depends on whether the reimbursement is paid to you under an accountable plan or a nonaccountable plan. H and r block free state file For a quick overview of how to report your reimbursement and moving expenses, see Table 2 in the section on How and When To Report, later. H and r block free state file Your employer should tell you what method of reimbursement is used and what records are required. H and r block free state file Accountable Plans To be an accountable plan, your employer's reimbursement arrangement must require you to meet all three of the following rules. H and r block free state file Your expenses must have a business connection – that is, you must have paid or incurred deductible expenses while performing services as an employee of your employer. H and r block free state file Two examples of this are the reasonable expenses of moving your possessions from your former home to your new home, and traveling from your former home to your new home. H and r block free state file You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file Adequate accounting. H and r block free state file   You adequately account for your moving expenses by giving your employer documentation of those expenses, such as a statement of expense, an account book, a diary, or a similar record in which you entered each expense at or near the time you had it. H and r block free state file Documentation includes receipts, canceled checks, and bills. H and r block free state file Reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file   What constitutes a “reasonable period of time” depends on the facts and circumstances of your situation. H and r block free state file However, regardless of the facts and circumstances, actions that take place within the times specified in the following list will be treated as taking place within a reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file You receive an advance within 30 days of the time you have an expense. H and r block free state file You adequately account for your expenses within 60 days after they were paid or incurred. H and r block free state file You return any excess reimbursement within 120 days after the expense was paid or incurred. H and r block free state file You are given a periodic statement (at least quarterly) that asks you to either return or adequately account for outstanding advances and you comply within 120 days of the statement. H and r block free state file Excess reimbursement. H and r block free state file   This includes any amount you are paid (including advances and allowances) that is more than the moving expenses that you adequately accounted for to your employer within a reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file Returning excess reimbursements. H and r block free state file   You must be required to return any excess reimbursement for your moving expenses to the person paying the reimbursement. H and r block free state file Excess reimbursement includes any amount for which you did not adequately account within a reasonable period of time. H and r block free state file For example, if you received an advance and you did not spend all the money on deductible moving expenses, or you do not have proof of all your expenses, you have an excess reimbursement. H and r block free state file You meet accountable plan rules. H and r block free state file   If for all reimbursements you meet the three rules for an accountable plan (listed earlier), your employer should not include any reimbursements of expenses in your income in box 1 of your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. H and r block free state file Instead, your employer should include the reimbursements in box 12 of your Form W-2. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file You lived in Boston and accepted a job in Atlanta. H and r block free state file Under an accountable plan, your employer reimbursed you for your actual traveling expenses from Boston to Atlanta and the cost of moving your furniture to Atlanta. H and r block free state file Your employer will include the reimbursement on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. H and r block free state file If your moving expenses are more than your reimbursement, you may be able to deduct your additional expenses (see How and When To Report, later). H and r block free state file You do not meet accountable plan rules. H and r block free state file   You may be reimbursed by your employer, but you may not meet all three rules for part of your expenses. H and r block free state file   If your deductible expenses are reimbursed under an otherwise accountable plan but you do not return, within a reasonable period, any reimbursement of expenses for which you did not adequately account, then only the amount for which you did adequately account is considered as paid under an accountable plan. H and r block free state file The remaining expenses are treated as having been reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan (discussed below). H and r block free state file Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses. H and r block free state file   You may be reimbursed by your employer for moving expenses, some of which are deductible expenses and some of which are not deductible. H and r block free state file The reimbursements you receive for the nondeductible expenses and any allowances for miscellaneous or unspecified expenses are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan (see below) and are included in your income. H and r block free state file If you are reimbursed by your employer for the taxes you must pay (including social security and Medicare taxes) because you have received taxable moving expense reimbursements, you must pay tax on this reimbursement as well, and it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. H and r block free state file Nonaccountable Plans A nonaccountable plan is a reimbursement arrangement that does not meet the three rules listed earlier under Accountable Plans. H and r block free state file In addition, the following payments will be treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. H and r block free state file Excess reimbursements you fail to return to your employer. H and r block free state file Reimbursements of nondeductible expenses. H and r block free state file See Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses, earlier. H and r block free state file If an arrangement pays for your moving expenses by reducing your wages, salary, or other pay, the amount of the reduction will be treated as a payment made under a nonaccountable plan. H and r block free state file This is because you are entitled to receive the full amount of your pay regardless of whether you had any moving expenses. H and r block free state file If you are not sure if the moving expense reimbursement arrangement is an accountable or nonaccountable plan, ask your employer. H and r block free state file Your employer will add the amount of any reimbursement paid to you under a nonaccountable plan to your wages, salary, or other pay. H and r block free state file Your employer will report the total in box 1 of your Form W-2. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file To get you to work in another city, your new employer reimburses you under an accountable plan for the $7,500 loss on the sale of your home. H and r block free state file Because this is a reimbursement of a nondeductible expense, it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan and must be included as income in box 1 of your Form W-2. H and r block free state file Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 Do not include in income any moving expense payment you received under the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970. H and r block free state file These payments are made to persons displaced from their homes, businesses, or farms by federal projects. H and r block free state file Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax Your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes from reimbursements and allowances paid to you that are included in your income. H and r block free state file See Reimbursements included in income, later. H and r block free state file Reimbursements excluded from income. H and r block free state file   Your employer should not include in your wages reimbursements paid under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for moving expenses that you: Could deduct if you had paid or incurred them, and Did not deduct in an earlier year. H and r block free state file These reimbursements are fringe benefits excludable from your income as qualified moving expense reimbursements. H and r block free state file Your employer should report these reimbursements on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. H and r block free state file    You cannot claim a moving expense deduction for expenses covered by reimbursements excluded from income (see Accountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier). H and r block free state file Expenses deducted in earlier year. H and r block free state file   If you receive a reimbursement this year for moving expenses deducted in an earlier year, and the reimbursement is not included as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2, you must include the reimbursement in income on Form 1040, line 21. H and r block free state file Your employer should show the amount of your reimbursement in box 12 of your Form W-2. H and r block free state file Reimbursements included in income. H and r block free state file   Your employer must include in your income any reimbursements made (or treated as made) under a nonaccountable plan, even though they are for deductible moving expenses. H and r block free state file See Nonaccountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier. H and r block free state file Your employer also must include in your gross income as wages any reimbursements of, or payments for, nondeductible moving expenses. H and r block free state file This includes amounts your employer reimbursed you under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for meals, househunting trips, and real estate expenses. H and r block free state file It also includes reimbursements that exceed your deductible expenses and that you do not return to your employer. H and r block free state file Reimbursement for deductible and nondeductible expenses. H and r block free state file    If your employer reimburses you for both deductible and nondeductible moving expenses, your employer must determine the amount of the reimbursement that is not taxable and not subject to withholding. H and r block free state file Your employer must treat any remaining amount as taxable wages and withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. H and r block free state file Amount of income tax withheld. H and r block free state file   If the reimbursements or allowances you receive are taxable, the amount of income tax your employer will withhold depends on several factors. H and r block free state file It depends in part on whether income tax is withheld from your regular wages, on whether the reimbursements and allowances are added to your regular wages, and on any information you have given to your employer on Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. H and r block free state file   Your employer can treat your reimbursements as supplemental wages and not include the reimbursements and allowances in your regular wages. H and r block free state file The employer can withhold income tax on supplemental wages at a flat rate which may be different from your regular tax rate. H and r block free state file Estimated tax. H and r block free state file    If you must make estimated tax payments, you need to take into account any taxable reimbursements and deductible moving expenses in figuring your estimated tax. H and r block free state file For details about estimated taxes, see Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. H and r block free state file How and When To Report This section explains how and when to report your moving expenses and any reimbursements or allowances you received for your move. H and r block free state file For a quick overview, see Table 2, later. H and r block free state file Form 3903 Use Form 3903 to figure your moving expense deduction. H and r block free state file Use a separate Form 3903 for each move for which you are deducting expenses. H and r block free state file Do not file Form 3903 if all of the following apply. H and r block free state file You moved to a location outside the United States in an earlier year. H and r block free state file You are claiming only storage fees while you were away from the United States. H and r block free state file Any amount your employer paid for the storage fees is included as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2. H and r block free state file Instead, enter the storage fees (after the reduction for the part that is allocable to excluded income) on Form 1040, line 26, and enter “Storage” on the dotted line next to the amount. H and r block free state file If you meet the special rules for members of the Armed Forces, see How to complete Form 3903 for members of the Armed Forces under Members of the Armed Forces, later. H and r block free state file Completing Form 3903. H and r block free state file   Complete Worksheet 1, earlier, or the Distance Test Worksheet in the instructions for Form 3903 to see whether you meet the distance test. H and r block free state file If so, complete lines 1 through 3 of the form using your actual expenses (except, if you use your own car, you can figure expenses based on the standard mileage rate, instead of actual amounts for gas and oil). H and r block free state file Enter on line 4 the total amount of your moving expense reimbursement that was excluded from your wages. H and r block free state file This excluded amount should be identified on Form W-2, box 12, with code P. H and r block free state file Expenses greater than reimbursement. H and r block free state file   If line 3 is more than line 4, subtract line 4 from line 3 and enter the result on line 5 and on Form 1040, line 26. H and r block free state file This is your moving expense deduction. H and r block free state file Expenses equal to or less than reimbursement. H and r block free state file    If line 3 is equal to or less than line 4, you have no moving expense deduction. H and r block free state file Subtract line 3 from line 4 and, if the result is more than zero, include it as income on Form 1040, line 7. H and r block free state file Table 2.

H and r block free state file    You cannot deduct moving expenses on Form 1040EZ or Form 1040A. H and r block free state file   When To Deduct Expenses You may have a choice of when to deduct your moving expenses. H and r block free state file Expenses not reimbursed. H and r block free state file   If you were not reimbursed, deduct your moving expenses in the year you paid or incurred the expenses. H and r block free state file Example. H and r block free state file In December 2012, your employer transferred you to another city in the United States, where you still work. H and r block free state file You are single and were not reimbursed for your moving expenses. H and r block free state file In 2012, you paid for moving your furniture and deducted these expenses on your 2012 tax return. H and r block free state file In January 2013, you paid for travel to the new city. H and r block free state file You can deduct these additional expenses on your 2013 tax return. H and r block free state file Expenses reimbursed. H and r block free state file   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. H and r block free state file 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. H and r block free state file See Choosing when to deduct, next. H and r block free state file   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. H and r block free state file Choosing when to deduct. H and r block free state file   If you use the cash method of accounting, which is used by most individuals, you can choose to deduct moving expenses in the year your employer reimburses you if: 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. H and r block free state file How to make the choice. H and r block free state file   You choose to deduct moving expenses in the year you received reimbursement by taking the deduction on your return, or amended return, for that year. H and r block free state file    You cannot deduct any moving expenses for which you received a reimbursement that was not included in your income. H and r block free state file Illustrated Example Tom and Peggy Smith are married and have two children. H and r block free state file They owned a home in Detroit where Tom worked. H and r block free state file On February 8, 2013, Tom's employer told him that he would be transferred to San Diego as of April 10 that year. H and r block free state file Peggy flew to San Diego on March 1 to look for a new home. H and r block free state file She put a down payment of $25,000 on a house being built and returned to Detroit on March 4. H and r block free state file The Smiths sold their Detroit home for $1,500 less than they paid for it. H and r block free state file They contracted to have their personal effects moved to San Diego on April 3. H and r block free state file The family drove to San Diego where they found that their new home was not finished. H and r block free state file They stayed in a nearby motel until the house was ready on May 1. H and r block free state file On April 10, Tom went to work in the San Diego plant where he still works. H and r block free state file Their records for the move show: 1) Peggy's pre-move househunting  trip:       Travel and lodging   $ 449       Meals   75   $ 524 2) Down payment on San Diego  home 25,000 3) Real estate commission paid on  sale of Detroit home 3,500 4) Loss on sale of Detroit home (not  including real estate commission) 1,500 5) Amount paid for moving personal  effects (furniture, other household  goods, etc. H and r block free state file ) 8,000 6) Expenses of driving to San Diego:       Mileage (Start 14,278;  End 16,478) 2,200 miles at 24 cents a mile   $ 528       Lodging   180       Meals   320   1,028 7) Cost of temporary living  expenses in San Diego:       Motel rooms   $1,450       Meals   2,280   3,730 Total $43,282   Tom was reimbursed $10,907 under an accountable plan. H and r block free state file His employer gave him the following breakdown of the reimbursement that was allowed under the employer's plan. H and r block free state file Moving personal effects   $6,800 Travel (and lodging) to San Diego   708 Travel (and lodging) for househunting trip   449 Lodging for temporary quarters   1,450 Loss on sale of home   1,500 Total reimbursement   $10,907 The employer included this reimbursement on Tom's Form W-2 for the year. H and r block free state file The reimbursement of allowable expenses, $7,508 for moving household goods and travel to San Diego, was included in box 12 of Form W-2. H and r block free state file His employer identified this amount with code P. H and r block free state file The employer included the balance, $3,399 reimbursement of nonallowable expenses, in box 1 of Form W-2 with Tom's other wages. H and r block free state file Tom must include this amount on Form 1040, line 7. H and r block free state file The employer withholds taxes from the $3,399, as discussed under Reimbursement for deductible and nondeductible expenses under Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax, earlier. H and r block free state file Also, Tom's employer could have given him a separate Form W-2 for his moving expense reimbursement. H and r block free state file To figure his tax deduction for moving expenses, Tom enters the following amounts on Form 3903. H and r block free state file Item 5 — moving personal effects (line 1)   $8,000 Item 6 — driving to San Diego ($528 + $180)  (line 2)   708 Total tax deductible moving expenses (line 3)   $8,708 Minus: Reimbursement included in box 12  of Form W-2 (line 4)   7,508 Tax deduction for moving expenses (line 5)   $1,200   Tom's Form 3903 is shown, later. H and r block free state file He also enters his deduction, $1,200, on Form 1040, line 26. H and r block free state file Nondeductible expenses. H and r block free state file   Of the $43,282 expenses that Tom and Peggy incurred, the following items totaling $34,574 ($43,282 – $8,708) cannot be deducted. H and r block free state file Item 1 — pre-move househunting expenses of $524. H and r block free state file Item 2 — the $25,000 down payment on the San Diego home. H and r block free state file If any part of it were for payment of deductible taxes or interest on the mortgage on the house, that part would be deductible as an itemized deduction. H and r block free state file Item 3 — the $3,500 real estate commission paid on the sale of the Detroit home. H and r block free state file The commission is used to figure the gain or loss on the sale. H and r block free state file Item 4 — the $1,500 loss on the sale of the Detroit home. H and r block free state file Item 6 — the $320 expense for meals while driving to San Diego. H and r block free state file (However, the lodging and car expenses are deductible. H and r block free state file ) Item 7 — temporary living expenses of $3,730. H and r block free state file    This image is too large to be displayed in the current screen.
