In addition to the "closely related" test, there is another test related to distance that must be met if you want to deduct moving expenses.
The distance between your old home and your new job must be at least 50 miles more than the distance from the old home to the old job. In other words, your new job would have increased your commuting distance by at least 50 miles, if you hadn't moved.
For those who are seeking their first full-time job or have been out of the workforce for a significant period of time, the new place of work must be at least 50 miles from your old home.
