I tried it, my tax preparer said no, you can get a deduction for moving to take another job, but not for school. May have changed though.

refurb is absolutely on the money (as usual), and no, nothing has changed. Basically, "your moving expense" is for personal reasons, meaning that you will incur this expense because of your decision to attend business school. You can usually take the deduction if you moved for a new job or to start a new business. In addition, you have to be at least 50 miles away from the old residence AND your new job must be a FT job for 75% of the year.

P.S. - My new year's resolution....stop answering people's tax questions....people will think I am some kind of tax guy. :?

If you are married then you can write it off if you spouse switches employment to that city...score one for being married. One of the many benefits of being married during school...also can write of tuition and stuff where as when you graduate there is a good chance you will quickly exceed the income limits.

If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

Would it be preferable to purchase a car prior to matriculation and filing for financial aid? Also, can I use the $13,000 gift tax for 2010 and do another $13,000 for 2011?
