Relocation Tax Deduction

Americans are becoming increasingly mobile all the time. Strangely enough, the IRS seems to be encouraging this mobility as the relocation tax deduction is one of the most liberal of all deductions.

There was a time when people tended to stay in one place much longer and the retirement party where the worker was getting a gold watch for 50 years of service was not uncommon.

The weeks do not have to be consecutive.

The deduction covers the cost to move your household goods and your personal property. It also includes lodging and travel expenses. The lodging can be in the area of the old home before the move and in the area of the new home after the...
