Provided you have moved at least 40 km to start a new job, a new business or to attend college or university full time, you can claim most of your moving expenses on your income tax return. However, not all expenses are tax-deductible. Moving expenses paid by your employer that are not a taxable benefit can’t be deducted. While the costs of selling a house, such as agent and legal fees, are tax-deductible, any money you spend making the house more attractive to a buyer is not. If you sell your home because you have to move and incur a loss on the sale, that loss is not tax-deductible either.
