“Joe cut my federal taxes in half and reduced my state taxes by a quarter. During his free, on-site consultation, he took the time to understand my business and provided valuable guidance for the future tax year. A week later, he came back with my tax return completed and ready for my signatures. No way I will go back to Turbotax!”

“Joe Franek provides what other tax services claim to provide but fall short providing…reliable, dependable quality service and maximum tax return. After trying several tax services over the years I was impressed with the care and attention Joe provide me. He took the time, in my home, to sit with my wife and I to review our taxes. Once complete he provided a complete and well presented packet along with clear directions to complete our taxes. I have used Franek Tax Service now for the past 15 years and continue to be satisfied with the quality of service and maximizing my return.”

Moving Expenses May Be Deductible! Taxpayers may be able to deduct certain expenses of moving to a new home because they started or changed job locations. Use Form 3903, Moving Expenses, to claim the moving expense deduction when filing a federal tax return. Home means the taxpayer’s main home. It does not include a seasonal home or other homes owned or kept up by the taxpayer or family members. Eligible taxpayers can deduct the reasonable expenses of moving household goods and personal effects and of traveling from the former home to the new home. Reasonable expenses may include the cost of lodging while traveling to the new home. The unreimbursed cost of packing, shipping, storing and insuring household goods in transit may also be deductible. Who Can Deduct Moving Expenses? 1. The move must closely relate to the start of work. Generally, taxpayers can consider moving expenses within one year of the date they start work at a new job location. 2. The distance test. A new main job location must be at least 50 miles farther from the employee’s former home than the previous job location. For example, if the old job was three miles from the old home, the new job must be at least 53 miles from the old home. A first job must be at least 50 miles from the employee’s former home. 3. The time test. After the move, the employee must work full-time at the new job for at least 39 weeks in the first year. Those self-employed must work full-time at least 78 weeks during the first two years at the new job site. Here are a few more moving expense tips from the IRS: • Reimbursed expenses. If an employer reimburses the employee for the cost of a move, that payment may need to be included as income. The employee would report any taxable amount on their tax return in the year of the payment. • Nondeductible expenses. Any part of the purchase price of a new home, the cost of selling a home, the cost of entering into or breaking a lease, meals while in transit, car tags and driver’s license costs are some of the items not deductible. • Recordkeeping. It is important that taxpayers maintain an accurate record of expenses paid to move. Save items such as receipts, bills, canceled checks, credit card statements, and mileage logs. Also, taxpayers should save statements of reimbursement from their employer. • Address Change. After any move, update the address with the IRS and the U.S. Post Office. To notify the IRS file Form 8822, Change of Address. ** We hope this was helpful information. If you have any questions about Moving expenses please contact Franek Tax Services....
