Hi All!
So, I have a tax issue that I'm trying to solve, and I'm hoping someone out there could help me out.

I just graduated from college on the East Coast and moved straight to San Francisco. The move was for a job, and so I'm deducting all of my moving expenses across the country (as far as I know, this is legitimate).
Now, after being here in SF for about 3-4 months, I'm moving again, this time down to San Diego, where I will setup a home office and work out of my apartment. This is where I get confused--can I deduct my moving expenses down to San Diego, in addition to those expenses incurred to San Francisco from the East Coast? I'm not quite sure what the IRS says about that.
And if I'm wrong in any assumptions that I'm making, please shoot me down--I don't want to get nailed by the IRS the first year I do my own taxes!!!

thanks in advance,
