I graduated from university in 1973 and moved my wife and family to another -province, where I began working What moving expenses, if any, may. I claim as a deduction on my 1973 income tax return' A Moving expenses are an allowable deduction from the salary or business income earned in the new work location. Any moving expenses in e'xcess of the income earned at the new work location in the year of the move can be claimed against the salary and business income earned in the following year. The moving expense claim would include any of the following costs incurred. 1. Travelling expenses, including meals and lodging, in the course of moving from the old residence to the new residence. 2 The cost of transporting and storing household effects. 3 The cost of temporary accommodation (not exceeding 15 days) near the old or new residence. 4. The cost of cancelling the lease on the old residence. 5. The selling costs pertaining to the old residence. The above moving costs include those of the taxpayer and the membeis of his household. Q. Are there any other rules we should be aware of, and what would happen if a person moved, for instance, near the end of the year, and his moving costs were greater than the income he earned for the short period remaining in the year at his new place of work? A. To answer the first part of your question, no deduction of moving expenses could be permitted if those expenses were either paid by the wage earner's employer or the employer reimbursed the employee for his moving expenses. In addition, no moving expense deductions will be allowed for moves into or out of Canada, except for certain students. In regard to the second part of your question, moving expenses paid must be deducted in the year of the move from income earned at the new place of work. If, as you suggest, however, your moving expenses were greater than income earned at the new place of work, the difference may be carried forward and deducted from income in the following year. SHERWIN-WILJJAJvIS COLOR HARMONYCENTO SHERWIN-WILLIAMS 424 7th S., Alta. 327-2513 Q. May every person who moves in 1973 or later deduct the from his income or is the deduction restricted in any way? A No. not everybody is able to claim a deduction for moving expenses. The deduction is limited to salary or wage earners, self- employed persons, and, in some cases, students attending post secondary educational institutions.
