I am always searching for new expenses that we can write off as tax deductions. Years ago when my husband and I were just starting out in life as husband and wife, he lost his job. Needless to say, this was not a good situation for a young couple. Fortunately, he received another offer, and he interviewed, and the company hired him. That's the good news.
The bad news is that the job was three states away, and we had to move everything we owned. The moving costs would have been bad enough at any time, but they were more taxing because we had been living solely on my income for months.
At that time, I was not aware of the tax deduction for moving expenses, but I was looking for any type of deduction, and I learned that some of our moving expenses could be deducted from our taxes since they were work related. At that time, the deduction made a big difference to us financially.
