Moving expense taxation
Nellis legal officials remind you not to include in your income the value of moving and storage services provided by the government in connection with a PCS move. However, if you receive reimbursements or allowances from the government that are more than your actual moving expenses, include the express income.
If you itemize your deductions, you can deduct moving expenses that were not reimbursed. These include the following:
-Moving household goods and personal effects
-Traveling to your new home
-House-hunting trips before you move
-Living temporarily in a new area
-Selling your former home and buying a new one
-Settling an old lease and signing a new one
