Changes to Job-Search Deductions

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

Changes to Job Search Deductions 

While job search expenses are no longer deductible on the federal tax return, many states 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 required under permanent change of station (PCS) orders and for moving household goods, family members (including pets), and one trip per family vehicle.

Be sure to include Forms 1099 and W-2s from all employers you had during the year on your tax return. If you worked in more than one state, make sure to file a tax return for each state.
