Moving expense tax deductions - ask Jay's, your Calgary movers about them

HaulingAt Jay's, your Calgary movers we understand that you want to save money on your relocation.  Here is some advice about moving expense tax deductions from Revenue Canada.  “If you are employed or self-employed, you can deduct eligible moving expenses from employment or self-employment income you earn at the new location.” – Canada Revenue Agency

These deductions are designed to give you a tax break on your relocation costs. Even full-time students relocating for higher education may qualify.

Moving home for work, education, or personal reasons can be a sizeable expense, especially if you don’t have an experienced mover. Although the government reimburses a reasonable amount at tax time, it is advisable to find a moving company that provides quality transportation and storage at competitive prices. You don’t always have to pay high rates for superior service; and money saved is money earned.
