The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides the following information.

Deductible Moving Expenses

Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses

To be eligible, you must meet both the distance test and time test. Call the IRS at (800) 829-1040 or visit www.irs.gov to request a free booklet explaining exactly what can and cannot be deducted.
