moving expense

My client has relocated over 40 km to a new work district for the same employer.

The employer's home office base is in the same location as previous years

My client is only required to check in once a week so the rest of the time

he is working within the new district

Is he eligible to deduct moving expenses for the sale of his principal residence, etc

even though he is working for the same employer?

moving expense

it does "specifically " say a NEW job---would be a very grey area as they also ask the address of NEW employer and that will be the same address.

I personally would put it on HOWEVER would warn client that very good chance it gets reviewed and you will work with them and CRA to try and have it allowed, but NO guarantees it will be allowed.

That way they know you are working in their best interests however the decision is NOT up to you.

Take a look at the "Income Tax Folio S1-F3-C4, Moving Expenses", you should find your answer there:
