Can both of a married couple claim moving expenses?

My daughter and her husband moved two times in the year. They each moved at separate times. Can they both claim moving expenses? And can both moves be claimed?

Can both of a married couple claim moving expenses?

  • Yes, you can split legitimate moving expenses with your spouse if that will maximize your deduction or have the spouse with the higher marginal tax rate claim the whole amount.
  • And yes you can claim more than one move.
