If you are moving for work, you should keep all of your receipts, including those for movers and lodging. Most expenses are tax deductible, depending on the number of miles moved, and provided it is a legitimate moving expense. Things like boxes, packing materials, gas, and even movers are all examples of legitimate moving expenses, so they are most likely deductible. In most cases, meals are not tax deductible. However, you should meet with a professional tax adviser. If you received any reimbursement from an employer, your deductions would be subtracted from that, but a tax adviser could help you determine your eligibility and potential deduction amounts.
