Turbotax 2005 free download Your move is closely related to the start of work. Turbotax 2005 free download You meet the distance test. Turbotax 2005 free download You meet the time test. Turbotax 2005 free download After you have read these rules, you may want to use Figure B to help you decide if you can deduct your moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download Retirees, survivors, and Armed Forces members. Turbotax 2005 free download   Different rules may apply if you are a member of the Armed Forces or a retiree or survivor moving to the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download These rules are discussed later in this publication. Turbotax 2005 free download Move Related to Start of Work Your move must be closely related, both in time and in place, to the start of work at your new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download Closely related in time. Turbotax 2005 free download   In most cases, you can consider moving expenses incurred within 1 year from the date you first reported to work at the new location as closely related in time to the start of work. Turbotax 2005 free download It is not necessary that you arrange to work before moving to a new location, as long as you actually go to work in that location. Turbotax 2005 free download    Figure A. Turbotax 2005 free download Illustration of Distance Test Please click here for the text description of the image. Turbotax 2005 free download Figure A   If you do not move within 1 year of the date you begin work, you ordinarily cannot deduct the expenses unless you can show that circumstances existed that prevented the move within that time. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download Your family moved more than a year after you started work at a new location. Turbotax 2005 free download You delayed the move for 18 months to allow your child to complete high school. Turbotax 2005 free download You can deduct your moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download Closely related in place. Turbotax 2005 free download   You can generally consider your move closely related in place to the start of work if the distance from your new home to the new job location is not more than the distance from your former home to the new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download If your move does not meet this requirement, you may still be able to deduct moving expenses if you can show that: You are required to live at your new home as a condition of your employment, or You will spend less time or money commuting from your new home to your new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download Home defined. Turbotax 2005 free download   Your home means your main home (residence). Turbotax 2005 free download It can be a house, apartment, condominium, houseboat, house trailer, or similar dwelling. Turbotax 2005 free download It does not include other homes owned or kept up by you or members of your family. Turbotax 2005 free download It also does not include a seasonal home, such as a summer beach cottage. Turbotax 2005 free download Your former home means your home before you left for your new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download Your new home means your home within the area of your new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download Retirees or survivors. Turbotax 2005 free download   You may be able to deduct the expenses of moving to the United States or its possessions even though the move is not related to the start of work at a new job location. Turbotax 2005 free download You must have worked outside the United States or be a survivor of someone who did. Turbotax 2005 free download See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Distance Test Your move will meet the distance test if your new main job location is at least 50 miles farther from your former home than your old main job location was from your former home. Turbotax 2005 free download For example, if your old main job location was 3 miles from your former home, your new main job location must be at least 53 miles from that former home. Turbotax 2005 free download You can use Worksheet 1 to see if you meet this test. Turbotax 2005 free download Worksheet 1. Turbotax 2005 free download Distance Test   Note. Turbotax 2005 free download Members of the Armed Forces may not have to meet this test. Turbotax 2005 free download See Members of the Armed Forces. Turbotax 2005 free download     1. Turbotax 2005 free download Enter the number of miles from your old home to your new workplace 1. Turbotax 2005 free download miles 2. Turbotax 2005 free download Enter the number of miles from your old home to your old workplace 2. Turbotax 2005 free download miles 3. Turbotax 2005 free download Subtract line 2 from line 1. Turbotax 2005 free download If zero or less, enter -0- 3. Turbotax 2005 free download miles 4. Turbotax 2005 free download Is line 3 at least 50 miles? □ Yes. Turbotax 2005 free download You meet this test. Turbotax 2005 free download  □ No. Turbotax 2005 free download You do not meet this test. Turbotax 2005 free download You cannot deduct your moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download The distance between a job location and your home is the shortest of the more commonly traveled routes between them. Turbotax 2005 free download The distance test considers only the location of your former home. Turbotax 2005 free download It does not take into account the location of your new home. Turbotax 2005 free download See Figure A, earlier. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download You moved to a new home less than 50 miles from your former home because you changed main job locations. Turbotax 2005 free download Your old main job location was 3 miles from your former home. Turbotax 2005 free download Your new main job location is 60 miles from that home. Turbotax 2005 free download Because your new main job location is 57 miles farther from your former home than the distance from your former home to your old main job location, you meet the distance test. Turbotax 2005 free download First job or return to full-time work. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you go to work full time for the first time, your place of work must be at least 50 miles from your former home to meet the distance test. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you go back to full-time work after a substantial period of part-time work or unemployment, your place of work also must be at least 50 miles from your former home. Turbotax 2005 free download Armed Forces. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you are in the Armed Forces and you moved because of a permanent change of station, you do not have to meet the distance test. Turbotax 2005 free download See Members of the Armed Forces, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Main job location. Turbotax 2005 free download   Your main job location is usually the place where you spend most of your working time. Turbotax 2005 free download This could be your office, plant, store, shop, or other location. Turbotax 2005 free download If there is no one place where you spend most of your working time, your main job location is the place where your work is centered, such as where you report for work or are otherwise required to “base” your work. Turbotax 2005 free download Union members. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you work for several employers on a short-term basis and you get work under a union hall system (such as a construction or building trades worker), your main job location is the union hall. Turbotax 2005 free download More than one job. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you have more than one job at any time, your main job location depends on the facts in each case. Turbotax 2005 free download The more important factors to be considered are: The total time you spend at each place, The amount of work you do at each place, and How much money you earn at each place. Turbotax 2005 free download    Table 1. Turbotax 2005 free download Satisfying the Time Test for Employees and Self-Employed Persons IF you are. Turbotax 2005 free download . Turbotax 2005 free download . Turbotax 2005 free download THEN you satisfy the time test by meeting the. Turbotax 2005 free download . Turbotax 2005 free download . Turbotax 2005 free download an employee 39-week test for employees. Turbotax 2005 free download self-employed 78-week test for self-employed persons. Turbotax 2005 free download both self-employed and an employee at the same time 78-week test for a self-employed person or the 39-week  test for an employee. Turbotax 2005 free download Your principal place of work  determines which test applies. Turbotax 2005 free download both self-employed and an employee, but unable to satisfy the 39-week test for employees 78-week test for self-employed persons. Turbotax 2005 free download Time Test To deduct your moving expenses, you also must meet one of the following two time tests. Turbotax 2005 free download The time test for employees. Turbotax 2005 free download The time test for self-employed persons. Turbotax 2005 free download Both of these tests are explained below. Turbotax 2005 free download See Table 1, below, for a summary of these tests. Turbotax 2005 free download You can deduct your moving expenses before you meet either of the time tests. Turbotax 2005 free download See Time Test Not Yet Met, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Time Test for Employees If you are an employee, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (39-week test). Turbotax 2005 free download Full-time employment depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. Turbotax 2005 free download For purposes of this test, the following four rules apply. Turbotax 2005 free download You count only your full-time work as an employee, not any work you do as a self-employed person. Turbotax 2005 free download You do not have to work for the same employer for all 39 weeks. Turbotax 2005 free download You do not have to work 39 weeks in a row. Turbotax 2005 free download You must work full time within the same general commuting area for all 39 weeks. Turbotax 2005 free download Temporary absence from work. Turbotax 2005 free download   You are considered to have worked full time during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, lockouts, layoffs, natural disasters, or similar causes. Turbotax 2005 free download You are also considered to have worked full time during any week you are absent from work for leave or vacation provided for in your work contract or agreement. Turbotax 2005 free download Seasonal work. Turbotax 2005 free download   If your work is seasonal, you are considered to be working full time during the off-season only if your work contract or agreement covers an off-season period of less than 6 months. Turbotax 2005 free download For example, a school teacher on a 12-month contract who teaches on a full-time basis for more than 6 months is considered to have worked full time for the entire 12 months. Turbotax 2005 free download    Figure B. Turbotax 2005 free download Can You Deduct Expenses for a Non-Military Move Within the United States? Please click here for the text description of the image. Turbotax 2005 free download Figure B Time Test for Self-Employed Persons If you are self-employed, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months and for a total of at least 78 weeks during the first 24 months after you arrive in the general area of your new job location (78-week test). Turbotax 2005 free download For purposes of the time test for self-employed persons, the following three rules apply. Turbotax 2005 free download You count any full-time work you do either as an employee or as a self-employed person. Turbotax 2005 free download You do not have to work for the same employer or be self-employed in the same trade or business for the 78 weeks. Turbotax 2005 free download You must work within the same general commuting area for all 78 weeks. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download You are a self-employed accountant who moves from Atlanta to New York City, and begin to work there on December 1, 2013. Turbotax 2005 free download You pay moving expenses in 2013 and 2014 in connection with this move. Turbotax 2005 free download On April 15, 2014, when you file your income tax return for the year 2013, you have been performing services as a self-employed individual on a full-time basis in New York City for approximately 20 weeks. Turbotax 2005 free download Although you have not satisfied the 78-week employment condition at this time, you can deduct your 2013 moving expenses on your 2013 income tax return as there is still sufficient time remaining before December 1, 2015, to satisfy such condition. Turbotax 2005 free download You can deduct any moving expenses you pay in 2014 on your 2014 income tax return even if you have not met the 78-week test. Turbotax 2005 free download You have until December 1, 2015, to satisfy this requirement. Turbotax 2005 free download Self-employment. Turbotax 2005 free download   You are self-employed if you work as the sole owner of an unincorporated business or as a partner in a partnership carrying on a business. Turbotax 2005 free download You are not considered self-employed if you are semi-retired, are a part-time student, or work only a few hours each week. Turbotax 2005 free download Full-time work. Turbotax 2005 free download   You can count only those weeks during which you work full time as a week of work. Turbotax 2005 free download Whether you work full time during any week depends on what is usual for your type of work in your area. Turbotax 2005 free download For example, you are a self-employed dentist and maintain office hours 4 days a week. Turbotax 2005 free download You are considered to perform services full time if maintaining office hours 4 days a week is not unusual for other self-employed dentists in your area. Turbotax 2005 free download Temporary absence from work. Turbotax 2005 free download   You are considered to be self-employed on a full-time basis during any week you are temporarily absent from work because of illness, strikes, natural disasters, or similar causes. Turbotax 2005 free download Seasonal trade or business. Turbotax 2005 free download   If your trade or business is seasonal, the off-season weeks when no work is required or available may be counted as weeks during which you worked full time. Turbotax 2005 free download The off-season must be less than 6 months and you must work full time before and after the off-season. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download You own and operate a motel at a beach resort. Turbotax 2005 free download The motel is closed for 5 months during the off-season. Turbotax 2005 free download You work full time as the operator of the motel before and after the off-season. Turbotax 2005 free download You are considered self-employed on a full-time basis during the weeks of the off-season. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you were both an employee and self-employed, see Table 1 earlier, for the requirements. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download Justin quit his job and moved from the east coast to the west coast to begin a full-time job as a cabinet-maker for C and L Cabinet Shop. Turbotax 2005 free download He generally worked at the shop about 40 hours each week. Turbotax 2005 free download Shortly after the move, Justin also began operating a cabinet-installation business from his home for several hours each afternoon and all day on weekends. Turbotax 2005 free download Because Justin's principal place of business is the cabinet shop, he can satisfy the time test by meeting the 39-week test. Turbotax 2005 free download    If Justin is unable to satisfy the requirements of the 39-week test during the 12-month period immediately following his arrival in the general location of his new principal place of work, he can satisfy the 78-week test. Turbotax 2005 free download Joint Return If you are married, file a joint return, and both you and your spouse work full-time, either of you can satisfy the full-time work test. Turbotax 2005 free download However, you cannot add the weeks your spouse worked to the weeks you worked to satisfy that test. Turbotax 2005 free download Time Test Not Yet Met You can deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 tax return even though you have not met the time test by the date your 2013 return is due. Turbotax 2005 free download You can do this if you expect to meet the 39-week test in 2014 or the 78-week test in 2014 or 2015. Turbotax 2005 free download If you do not deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, and you later meet the time test, you can file an amended return for 2013 to take the deduction. Turbotax 2005 free download See When To Deduct Expenses later, for more details. Turbotax 2005 free download Failure to meet the time test. Turbotax 2005 free download    If you deduct moving expenses but do not meet the time test in 2014 or 2015, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for the year you cannot meet the test, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download You arrive in the general area of your new job location, as an employee, on September 15, 2013. Turbotax 2005 free download You deduct your moving expenses on your 2013 return, the year of the move, even though you have not yet met the time test by the date your return is due. Turbotax 2005 free download If you do not meet the 39-week test during the 12-month period following your arrival in the general area of your new job location, you must either: Report your moving expense deduction as other income on your Form 1040 for 2014, or Use Form 1040X to amend your 2013 return, figuring your tax without the moving expense deduction. Turbotax 2005 free download Exceptions to the Time Test You do not have to meet the time test if one of the following applies. Turbotax 2005 free download You are in the Armed Forces and you moved because of a permanent change of station. Turbotax 2005 free download See Members of the Armed Forces , later. Turbotax 2005 free download Your main job location was outside the United States and you moved to the United States because you retired. Turbotax 2005 free download See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. Turbotax 2005 free download You are the survivor of a person whose main job location at the time of death was outside the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download See Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Your job at the new location ends because of death or disability. Turbotax 2005 free download You are transferred for your employer's benefit or laid off for a reason other than willful misconduct. Turbotax 2005 free download For this exception, you must have obtained full-time employment and you must have expected to meet the test at the time you started the job. Turbotax 2005 free download Retirees or Survivors Who Move to the United States If you are a retiree who was working abroad or a survivor of a decedent who was working abroad and you move to the United States or one of its possessions, you do not have to meet the time test, discussed earlier. Turbotax 2005 free download However, you must meet the requirements discussed below under Retirees who were working abroad or Survivors of decedents who were working abroad. Turbotax 2005 free download If you are living in the United States, retire, and then move and remain retired, you cannot claim a moving expense deduction for that move. Turbotax 2005 free download United States defined. Turbotax 2005 free download   For this section of this publication, the term “United States” includes the possessions of the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download Retirees who were working abroad. Turbotax 2005 free download   You can deduct moving expenses for a move to a new home in the United States when you permanently retire. Turbotax 2005 free download However, both your former main job location and your former home must have been outside the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download Permanently retired. Turbotax 2005 free download   You are considered permanently retired when you cease gainful full-time employment or self-employment. Turbotax 2005 free download If, at the time you retire, you intend your retirement to be permanent, you will be considered retired even though you later return to work. Turbotax 2005 free download Your intention to retire permanently may be determined by: Your age and health, The customary retirement age for people who do similar work, Whether you receive retirement payments from a pension or retirement fund, and The length of time before you return to full-time work. Turbotax 2005 free download Decedents. Turbotax 2005 free download   Qualified deductible moving expenses are allowed on a final return (Form 1040 or 1040NR) when a taxpayer has moved and dies within the same calendar year. Turbotax 2005 free download The personal representative filing on behalf of that taxpayer should complete and attach Form 3903 to the final return. Turbotax 2005 free download   A personal representative can be an executor, administrator, or anyone who is in charge of the deceased person's property. Turbotax 2005 free download For more information, see Publication 559, Survivors, Executors, and Administrators. Turbotax 2005 free download Survivors of decedents who were working abroad. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you are the spouse or the dependent of a person whose main job location at the time of death was outside the United States, you can deduct moving expenses if the following five requirements are met. Turbotax 2005 free download The move is to a home in the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download The move begins within 6 months after the decedent's death. Turbotax 2005 free download (When a move begins is described below. Turbotax 2005 free download ) The move is from the decedent's former home. Turbotax 2005 free download The decedent's former home was outside the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download The decedent's former home was also your home. Turbotax 2005 free download When a move begins. Turbotax 2005 free download   A move begins when one of the following events occurs. Turbotax 2005 free download You contract for your household goods and personal effects to be moved to your home in the United States, but only if the move is completed within a reasonable time. Turbotax 2005 free download Your household goods and personal effects are packed and on the way to your home in the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download You leave your former home to travel to your new home in the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download Deductible Moving Expenses If you meet the requirements discussed earlier under Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses, you can deduct the reasonable expenses of: Moving your household goods and personal effects (including in-transit or foreign-move storage expenses), and Traveling (including lodging but not meals) to your new home. Turbotax 2005 free download You cannot deduct any expenses for meals. Turbotax 2005 free download Reasonable expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download   You can deduct only those expenses that are reasonable for the circumstances of your move. Turbotax 2005 free download For example, the cost of traveling from your former home to your new one should be by the shortest, most direct route available by conventional transportation. Turbotax 2005 free download If during your trip to your new home, you stop over, or make side trips for sightseeing, the additional expenses for your stopover or side trips are not deductible as moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download Beth's employer transferred her from Boston, Massachusetts, to Buffalo, New York. Turbotax 2005 free download On her way to Buffalo, Beth drove into Canada to visit the Toronto Zoo. Turbotax 2005 free download Since Beth's excursion into Canada was away from the usual Boston-Buffalo route, the expenses paid or incurred for the excursion are not deductible.

Turbotax 2005 free download However, you can only deduct expenses for one trip per person. Turbotax 2005 free download If you use your own car, see Travel by car, earlier. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download   In February 2013, Josh and Robyn Black moved from Minneapolis to Washington, DC, where Josh was starting a new job.

Turbotax 2005 free download   See Publication 463, Travel, Entertainment, Gift, and Car Expenses, for information on deducting your business expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursements This section explains how to report a reimbursement (including advances and allowances) on your tax return. Turbotax 2005 free download It covers reimbursements for any of your moving expenses discussed in this publication. Turbotax 2005 free download It also explains the types of reimbursements on which your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. Turbotax 2005 free download Types of Reimbursement Plans If you receive a reimbursement for your moving expenses, how you report this amount and your expenses depends on whether the reimbursement is paid to you under an accountable plan or a nonaccountable plan. Turbotax 2005 free download For a quick overview of how to report your reimbursement and moving expenses, see Table 2 in the section on How and When To Report, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer should tell you what method of reimbursement is used and what records are required. Turbotax 2005 free download Accountable Plans To be an accountable plan, your employer's reimbursement arrangement must require you to meet all three of the following rules. Turbotax 2005 free download Your expenses must have a business connection – that is, you must have paid or incurred deductible expenses while performing services as an employee of your employer. Turbotax 2005 free download Two examples of this are the reasonable expenses of moving your possessions from your former home to your new home, and traveling from your former home to your new home. Turbotax 2005 free download You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses within a reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download You must return any excess reimbursement or allowance within a reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download Adequate accounting. Turbotax 2005 free download   You adequately account for your moving expenses by giving your employer documentation of those expenses, such as a statement of expense, an account book, a diary, or a similar record in which you entered each expense at or near the time you had it. Turbotax 2005 free download Documentation includes receipts, canceled checks, and bills. Turbotax 2005 free download Reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download   What constitutes a “reasonable period of time” depends on the facts and circumstances of your situation. Turbotax 2005 free download However, regardless of the facts and circumstances, actions that take place within the times specified in the following list will be treated as taking place within a reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download You receive an advance within 30 days of the time you have an expense. Turbotax 2005 free download You adequately account for your expenses within 60 days after they were paid or incurred. Turbotax 2005 free download You return any excess reimbursement within 120 days after the expense was paid or incurred. Turbotax 2005 free download You are given a periodic statement (at least quarterly) that asks you to either return or adequately account for outstanding advances and you comply within 120 days of the statement. Turbotax 2005 free download Excess reimbursement. Turbotax 2005 free download   This includes any amount you are paid (including advances and allowances) that is more than the moving expenses that you adequately accounted for to your employer within a reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download Returning excess reimbursements. Turbotax 2005 free download   You must be required to return any excess reimbursement for your moving expenses to the person paying the reimbursement. Turbotax 2005 free download Excess reimbursement includes any amount for which you did not adequately account within a reasonable period of time. Turbotax 2005 free download For example, if you received an advance and you did not spend all the money on deductible moving expenses, or you do not have proof of all your expenses, you have an excess reimbursement. Turbotax 2005 free download You meet accountable plan rules. Turbotax 2005 free download   If for all reimbursements you meet the three rules for an accountable plan (listed earlier), your employer should not include any reimbursements of expenses in your income in box 1 of your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Turbotax 2005 free download Instead, your employer should include the reimbursements in box 12 of your Form W-2. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download You lived in Boston and accepted a job in Atlanta. Turbotax 2005 free download Under an accountable plan, your employer reimbursed you for your actual traveling expenses from Boston to Atlanta and the cost of moving your furniture to Atlanta. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer will include the reimbursement on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. Turbotax 2005 free download If your moving expenses are more than your reimbursement, you may be able to deduct your additional expenses (see How and When To Report, later). Turbotax 2005 free download You do not meet accountable plan rules. Turbotax 2005 free download   You may be reimbursed by your employer, but you may not meet all three rules for part of your expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download   If your deductible expenses are reimbursed under an otherwise accountable plan but you do not return, within a reasonable period, any reimbursement of expenses for which you did not adequately account, then only the amount for which you did adequately account is considered as paid under an accountable plan. Turbotax 2005 free download The remaining expenses are treated as having been reimbursed under a nonaccountable plan (discussed below). Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download   You may be reimbursed by your employer for moving expenses, some of which are deductible expenses and some of which are not deductible. Turbotax 2005 free download The reimbursements you receive for the nondeductible expenses and any allowances for miscellaneous or unspecified expenses are treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan (see below) and are included in your income. Turbotax 2005 free download If you are reimbursed by your employer for the taxes you must pay (including social security and Medicare taxes) because you have received taxable moving expense reimbursements, you must pay tax on this reimbursement as well, and it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. Turbotax 2005 free download Nonaccountable Plans A nonaccountable plan is a reimbursement arrangement that does not meet the three rules listed earlier under Accountable Plans. Turbotax 2005 free download In addition, the following payments will be treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan. Turbotax 2005 free download Excess reimbursements you fail to return to your employer. Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursements of nondeductible expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download See Reimbursement of nondeductible expenses, earlier. Turbotax 2005 free download If an arrangement pays for your moving expenses by reducing your wages, salary, or other pay, the amount of the reduction will be treated as a payment made under a nonaccountable plan. Turbotax 2005 free download This is because you are entitled to receive the full amount of your pay regardless of whether you had any moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download If you are not sure if the moving expense reimbursement arrangement is an accountable or nonaccountable plan, ask your employer. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer will add the amount of any reimbursement paid to you under a nonaccountable plan to your wages, salary, or other pay. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer will report the total in box 1 of your Form W-2. Turbotax 2005 free download Example. Turbotax 2005 free download To get you to work in another city, your new employer reimburses you under an accountable plan for the $7,500 loss on the sale of your home. Turbotax 2005 free download Because this is a reimbursement of a nondeductible expense, it is treated as paid under a nonaccountable plan and must be included as income in box 1 of your Form W-2. Turbotax 2005 free download Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 Do not include in income any moving expense payment you received under the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970. Turbotax 2005 free download These payments are made to persons displaced from their homes, businesses, or farms by federal projects. Turbotax 2005 free download Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax Your employer must withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes from reimbursements and allowances paid to you that are included in your income. Turbotax 2005 free download See Reimbursements included in income, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursements excluded from income. Turbotax 2005 free download   Your employer should not include in your wages reimbursements paid under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for moving expenses that you: Could deduct if you had paid or incurred them, and Did not deduct in an earlier year. Turbotax 2005 free download These reimbursements are fringe benefits excludable from your income as qualified moving expense reimbursements. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer should report these reimbursements on your Form W-2, box 12, with Code P. Turbotax 2005 free download    You cannot claim a moving expense deduction for expenses covered by reimbursements excluded from income (see Accountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier). Turbotax 2005 free download Expenses deducted in earlier year. Turbotax 2005 free download   If you receive a reimbursement this year for moving expenses deducted in an earlier year, and the reimbursement is not included as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2, you must include the reimbursement in income on Form 1040, line 21. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer should show the amount of your reimbursement in box 12 of your Form W-2. Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursements included in income. Turbotax 2005 free download   Your employer must include in your income any reimbursements made (or treated as made) under a nonaccountable plan, even though they are for deductible moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download See Nonaccountable Plans under Types of Reimbursement Plans, earlier. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer also must include in your gross income as wages any reimbursements of, or payments for, nondeductible moving expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download This includes amounts your employer reimbursed you under an accountable plan (explained earlier) for meals, househunting trips, and real estate expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download It also includes reimbursements that exceed your deductible expenses and that you do not return to your employer. Turbotax 2005 free download Reimbursement for deductible and nondeductible expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download    If your employer reimburses you for both deductible and nondeductible moving expenses, your employer must determine the amount of the reimbursement that is not taxable and not subject to withholding. Turbotax 2005 free download Your employer must treat any remaining amount as taxable wages and withhold income, social security, and Medicare taxes. Turbotax 2005 free download Amount of income tax withheld. Turbotax 2005 free download   If the reimbursements or allowances you receive are taxable, the amount of income tax your employer will withhold depends on several factors. Turbotax 2005 free download It depends in part on whether income tax is withheld from your regular wages, on whether the reimbursements and allowances are added to your regular wages, and on any information you have given to your employer on Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. Turbotax 2005 free download   Your employer can treat your reimbursements as supplemental wages and not include the reimbursements and allowances in your regular wages. Turbotax 2005 free download The employer can withhold income tax on supplemental wages at a flat rate which may be different from your regular tax rate. Turbotax 2005 free download Estimated tax. Turbotax 2005 free download    If you must make estimated tax payments, you need to take into account any taxable reimbursements and deductible moving expenses in figuring your estimated tax. Turbotax 2005 free download For details about estimated taxes, see Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Turbotax 2005 free download How and When To Report This section explains how and when to report your moving expenses and any reimbursements or allowances you received for your move. Turbotax 2005 free download For a quick overview, see Table 2, later. Turbotax 2005 free download Form 3903 Use Form 3903 to figure your moving expense deduction. Turbotax 2005 free download Use a separate Form 3903 for each move for which you are deducting expenses. Turbotax 2005 free download Do not file Form 3903 if all of the following apply. Turbotax 2005 free download You moved to a location outside the United States in an earlier year. Turbotax 2005 free download You are claiming only storage fees while you were away from the United States. Turbotax 2005 free download Any amount your employer paid for the storage fees is included as wages in box 1 of your Form W-2.
