Generally, you can claim eligible moving expenses during the year:
- If you move 40+ kms closer to your new location of employment or school
-You moved to work, begin business operations, or study at the new location
Eligible moving expenses can include meals on the road, travel costs for all members of your household moving, moving company expenses, even lease-cancellation penalties paid to your landlord can be claimed if you have the receipt to prove that they were a part of your moving expenses.
While actual paper-receipts are the best, CRA will also accept credit card statements and bank statements to document moving expenses including gas, meals on the road, hotels, even camp campground fees can be included in moving expenses.
