working in another city

I accepted a position with the same company in another city 200+ miles from my primary residence. I will be living in an apartment which I will be sharing with another co-worker who is in the same boat. We both will be keeping the primary residence where our families still live.
What I have read so far is disturbing; that I can not deduct any of the expenses incurred while working in another city.
Is there anything that can be deducted?

You can deduct moving expenses for a job, but your not living expenses ,moving Co. not security deposit or rent payments. You can deduct your moving expenses if you meet all three of the following requirements.Your move is closely related to the start of work.You meet the distance test.You meet the time test. 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 work full-time as a self-employed person for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months following your move and at least 78 weeks during the 24 month period following your move;also, 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 . so, The move is far enough to satisfy the distance test

But you can not deduct commuting exp between the apt and your work place in another city.





Is there anything that can be deducted?
