Moving Expenses are now taxable.

Due to changes to the federal tax law, all moving expenses incurred after 2017 that are paid or reimbursed by the University will be taxable to employees. There are no longer non-taxable payments for relocation expenses under the law. As such, all University paid or reimbursed moving expenses will be reported as taxable income and subject to University payroll tax withholding.

Any questions should be directed to the University Tax Manager.
