Hi Fools.
I have a couple questions concerning taxes--please bear with me, as I am young and new at this game.
1. i'm moving across the country for a job. I read the moving expenses article on the Fool website, and it had stated moving expenses are deductible when moving from one job to another. I have never had a real job before (i just graduated from undergrad), and I was wondering if I still qualified for the moving deductions.
In addition, is there a ceiling or a floor concerning how much I can deduct?

2. I heard somewhere (please reaffirm) that contributions to any retirement accounts (in my case, a Roth) are deductible. Is this applicable only when your contribution is directly made from income?

If you could direct your replies to my email address, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks and good fortune!
