This year of course, the deduction still holds And, just to make sure everyone knows who's eligible and where and how to figure it out, we re outlining the basics of "Moving Expenses" below. If you're claiming for "Moving Expenses' in 1973, clip this ad and use it for reference when you're doing your own return. Who can deduct moving expenses? Generally, there are three conditions you must meet to be able to deduct moving expenses from your income. First, you must have moved in order to earn salary, wages, or self-employed income in a new location in Canada Second, by moving, you must be at least 25 miles closer to your new place of work than before Third, your business or employment at your former location must have ceased In summary you must have stopped working at your old location, moved to a newjocation that's at least 25 miles closer to your new job, and earned income from your new employment or self-employment. Does that mean that if I moved but didn't earn income at my new location, I can't deduct my moving expenses? That's right You must be working at your new location to be able to claim How much can I claim? Although there is no dollar limit onlhe amount deductible, there are a few rules The main thing however, is that moving expenses may be deducted only from income earned at the new location. You mean if I moved from Winnipeg to Calgary, and the move cost me but I only earned white in Calgary, in 1973, that I can only claim to That's correct. But... in a case such as the one above, where moving expenses were more than income earned at the new location that year, the difference can be earned forward and deducted the next year (So, unless you move constantly and expensively, chances are, if you meet the conditions, you will be able to claim fully.) But in a case like that, wouldn't it be easier to fust wait and deduct it all the next year? The rule states that the moving expenses must be claimed to the extent possible, in the year the move takes place. My employer paid most of my moving expenses can I also claim them? No Any moving expenses paid for by your employer, or for which you were reimbursed by your employer, cannot be claimed. You may, however, deduct any eligible expenses your employer did not pay. And just what Is an "eligible" Moving Expense? Generally, most expenses incurred and paid by you to move yourself, your family and household goods to a new location. APRIL AID Could you detail mem? We could, but it would take a lot of room Whirjh is why a special pamphlet called "Moving Expenses" is available Irom your District Taxation Office It lists and explains everything very clearly Alright, so I get the pamphlet, but when do I list all this on my return? You don't. When you re getting your pamphlet, you ask foraT1-M form also It's called "Claim lor Moving Expenses" and everything is.broken down and listed, so that all you have to do is fill in the information Isn't there any explanation in the Guide? Yes. It s Item 31B But you II still have to get Ihe pamphlet and form Why weren't they Included with my return? Simply because moving expenses in any given year apply io a small percentage of taxpayers, and it would cost a great deal (and waste a great deal) to send them to the more than taxpayers I guess that makes sense. Now; what if I moved in or out of Canada? Generally, no 'Except for some students But that's all explained in the pamphlet, too. Do I need receipts lor Moving Expenses? Yes Although you don't have to include receipts when you file, you must have them yourself in case they are requested What you've said then is that III do meet the 3 conditions mentioned first, I now contact my District Taxation Off tot for the pamphlet and T1-M form? Right. And you can do that by phoning, dropping by or writing. The address and phone number are below under April Aid. And if I still have problems... Follow April Aid. Ask the people at your District Taxation Office anything you re not clear about They're there to help. And glad to Assuming that I manege to get the pamphlet and T1-M, and fill it in correctly, where does it go on my return?

The T1-M you attach to your return Anything else?
