thanks dogbo & paul. i am still trying to resolve this with my employer (more specifcally, our benefits department). the argument comes down to this, "what is meant by compensation?"

i have found nothing in my research (IRS tax codes and other websites) that suggests compensation is interchangeable with taxable income. the benefits dept is basically trying to define eligible compensation as taxable income (i.e., ALL sources of income including this moving allowance!)

my understanding of compensation is that its payment "for services rendered" and therefore moving allowances are not included.

do you guys (or does anyone) know the IRS definition of compensation versus taxable income or how compensation is defined within HCE?
