Any guidance on claiming moving expenses when spouses moved at different time, and some expenses were reimbursed

Rather than itemizing all of your expenses for each spouse, consider adding all similar costs together and entering the totals under one spouse. Since either spouse can claim the total amount of moving expenses, it might be in your best interest to have all the expenses (minus reimbursements) claimed by you or your spouse. For example, if your spouse moved 2 weeks after you did and you both incurred airfare expenses, add both costs together, enter the date of the later airfare receipt as the date, and enter the expense on your return or your spouse's.
