I am relocating from Detroit to Atlanta this summer for a change of jobs. I have been reading up on the moving deduction expense and I have some questions for you out there:
I know that I can't deduct expenses for a pre-move house hunting trip but I am planning on renting and driving a truck down to Atlanta in April in advance of the move. Can I deduct any of the following:
Rental truck costs
Return flight costs
Also when I make the move my wife and I will both be changing jobs. We are going to both need to drive our current cars down there. Can we deduct the mileage for the trip for both cars? Does this still apply if we move at separate times (she moves June 1, I move July 1)?
Our employers will not be paying for any of the moving costs. Thanks in advance.
