I moved in November 2018, but incurred moving expenses in both 2018 and 2019. Should I declare all moving expenses on my 2018 Income Tax, or report in the year occurred?

I moved from Alberta to Ontario November 2018. I have moving expenses that occurred in 2018, and I also have moving expenses that occurred in 2019. My furniture and vehicle weren't moved from Albert to Ontario until February 2019. When do I report my moving expenses? Do I report all moving expenses on my 2018 Income Tax even though some expenses didn't occur until 2019, or do I report expenses  that occurred and paid for in 2018 on my 2018 Income tax, and expenses that occurred in 2019 on my 2019 Income tax even though the expenses are related to my 2018 move?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
