Relocation expenses are deductible when certain qualification requirements are incurred. The Internal Revenue Service requires that your move must be in connection with beginning work at a new job or beginning work for a new job in a new job location. The commute from the old residence to the new place of employment must be at least 50 miles farther than the commute from the old residence to the old place of work.

The employee must be employed full time for 39 weeks during the twelve month period beginning when the employee arrives at the location of the new place of employment.


In some situations the employer might reimburse a portion or all of the moving expenses of the employee. The employer will withhold income tax and payroll taxes on some or all of the expenses.
