Changes to Job-Search Deductions

Tax reform suspeneded deductions for job hunting, moving for a job, and job-related expenses. These expenses are no longer deductible for tax years 2018 through 2025.

Federal job search deductions are no longer available for most taxpayers.

 

Tax reform has suspended the deduction for job hunting, moving to a new location for a job, and all job related expenses on your federal return. However, many states are not complying with all the federal changes and still allow some, or all, of your job-related expenses.

 

Active duty members of the Armed Forces are still eligible to deduct unreimbursed moving expenses.  The move must be done under permanent change of station (PCS) orders and must be for moving household goods, family members (including pets), and one trip per family vehicle.

 

Make sure to include your W-2s and 1099s from all previous employers, as well as your current one, on your tax return. If you worked in more than one state, make sure to file a tax return for each state.
