Employee Moving Expenses


In the past, qualified moving expenses paid for directly by IU, were considered non-taxable to the employee. The basis for this non-taxation was driven on the fact that the employee, in the absence of the employer paying the expenses directly, was able to claim a moving tax deduction on their personal return. With the new Tax Reform Bill, this provision is now suspended and moving expenses will now be considered taxable income, effective 1/1/2018. Please the IU Policy on Employee Relocation Guidelines for more information.
