Moving Expenses from 2010

Hello,

Moved from Massachusetts to Texas in August 2010. Found a job in April 2011 in Texas. Did not deduct the moving expenses in 2010. Can I deduct them in 2011 return?

Thank you!

“Moved from Massachusetts to Texas in August 2010. Found a job in April 2011 in Texas. Did not deduct the moving expenses in 2010. Can I deduct them in 2011 return?”----->In general yes.However,it depends on the situation; if you have moved because of a job, either because you started a new job or were relocated in your current job, you can most likely deduct all of your moving expenses from your taxes during that tax year.As long as you moved due to a change in your job or business location, or because you started a new job or business, you may be able to deduct your reasonable moving expenses but not any expenses for meals; if you are an EE, you must work full-time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months immediately following your arrival in TX in 2010-2011, the general area of your new job location. 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 immediately following your arrival in TX as the general area of your new work location. You need to make a list of what you can deduct. You can deduct the cost of transporting your personal goods, including transitory storage expenses for either domestic relocation. You can also deduct travel expenses, including lodging but not meals, to your new home in TX.Keep your receipts if you traveled by car. If you traveled to your new home in TX by car, you can deduct the actual expenses such as oil and gas. You must keep accurate receipts for these expenses. You can also deduct the federal mileage allowance.
