I have a question about moving expenses. My wife and I have two residences, one in Ohio (we own, and which we claim as our 'permanent residence" for taxes, voting, car registration, etc.) and one in Massachusetts (we rent). She works in Ohio and I work in Massachusetts. And we fly a lot. In 2000, I had a 6 month parental leave, so we moved out of MA apt., put stuff in storage, and "moved" back to Ohio. I didn't change jobs (and got paid while on parental leave), but I did "move". Or did I? Does this scenario qualify for the moving expenses deduction? Any college professors reading this who have figured out the relationship, if any, between the moving expense deduction and leaving one's home for a significant period of time to do research, for example?
