Smile tax refund for moving twice

Hello

Please help me with determining if I am eligible for a tax refund for moving twice.

I worked in Texas from Jan 2013 - march 15th 2013, moved to Oklahoma from March 16 2013 - May 3rd 2013, then moved back to Texas May5th 2013 - end of year.

Distance from Houston, TX to Tulsa OK is about 500 miles.

In this scenario, do I qualify for moving expense refund, kindly help.

Thanks
Uno

#1;so I assume that you are a full year resident of TX and a part year resident of Oklahoma then y ou must pa tax to Oklahoma inly on your income that you earned in OK to OK; do not report your income that you earned in TX to OK. Then as there is no state income tax in TX you can claim tax that you paid took n your 1040 aslongas you itemize deductions on your return.

#2; If you moved to start a new job, or to seek work in a new city, you may be able to deduct the cost of your moving expenses from your income. Qualifying expenses include costs for packing and shipping your household goods and personal property, and costs for travel and lodging. Meals are not deductible as a moving expense. You can deduct the cost of moving expenses that exceed any reimbursements from your employeryou can deduct your moving expenses if you meet these three requirements:Your move is closely related to the start of work. and.You meet the distance test. IRS has very strict rules surrounding who can claim moving expenses on their tax return. Your move will meet the distance test if your new job location is at least 50 miles farther from your old home than your old job location was from your old home; Closely related in time, means that the move occurred within one year from the date you started to work at the new location. It's not necessary that you arrange to work before moving to a new location, as long as you actually do go to work.
