Being able to deduct moving expenses can ease some of the burden of the cost associated with the move. The rules are very specific and somewhat mechanical. Review these rules with your tax person before make the move. Also check with your employer to see if they offer some direct payment for some moving expenses. Some direct payments could be excluded from your income.
Moving can be very stressful as well as an expensive process. The current tax law provides for a deduction for some but not all moving related expenses. A little planning can take some of the sting out of a move. Unfortunately, there is no help for the stress.
