If you changed job locations or started a new job, you might be able to deduct your moving expenses. The expenses are deductible in the year paid or incurred, but you can elect to deduct them in the year you are reimbursed.
These expenses are deductible, provided that the amount is adjudged "reasonable":
* Moving household goods and personal effects.
* Traveling (including lodging and 80 percent of the cost of meals) to the new residence.
* Traveling (including lodging and 80 percent of meals) after obtaining employment to look for a new home.
* Lodging and 80 percent of meals in temporary quarters in the new job site's general area for up to 30 days while waiting to move into the new home.
