I am qualified to take the moving deduction. Per the IRS materials, utility connection/disconnection fees are qualified for deduction. Are there limitations to the definition of utility? Ex: does cable, internet, phone, cell phone, security monitoring qualify?=======>> I guess so In general, you can deduct any costs of connecting or disconnecting utilities required because you are moving your household goods, appliances, or personal effects. Aslongas you satisfy the requirements, then you can deduct the costs of connecting/disconnecting cable, internet, phone, cell phone or monitoring for security.
For qualified utilities, do applicable early termination fees qualify for the deduction as well? Ex: I will be assessed an early termination fee for disconnection of propane service=======>>As long as the assessed fees are costs of disconnecting utilities as you must move for job relation or etc can be deductible on Form 3903 to figure your moving expense deduction and 1040 line 26.
