The rules are a bit more complicated. The new job location must be at least 50 miles farther from the old residence than was the old job location. You won't need gas receipts because you can use the standard rate per mile or the actual cost of gasoline. You can also deduct cost of moving goods, personal possesions, vehicles and pets.

All true, but OP didn't indicate (to me, anyway) a change in place of employment. Without that, there's no deduction.

I would, BTW, track gas nad oil on a deductible move today. It might be more than the mileage allowance.
