I moved this past year for a new job, and my employer paid my moving expenses. The money was paid directly to the moving company. I just recieved a 1099-misc form for the amount paid to the moving company. Is this amount considered taxable income? How should this be handled for tax purposes?The only reason you should have received a 1099 from your employer for moving expenses they paid is if what they paid for included:1. Non-deductible expenses, such as meals, expense of buying or selling your house, real estate taxes, car registrations, etc.2. The expenses were paid under a nonaccountable plan. A nonaccountable plan is one in which BOTH "adequate accounting" and "return of excess reimbursement" is not required by the employer.However, because you did not receive a reimbursement (your employer paid the expense directly to the moving company), I don't see any reason why they should have issued you a 1099 -- it appears to have been issued in error. Perhaps other tax professionals on this board can enlighten me if I am missing something here.CPAScott(who doesn't think he's missing anything)
