The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017 has changed the taxability of moving expense payments. Effective immediately, incoming faculty and staff who are provided with moving expenses paid by MSU will no longer be able to direct bill those expenses to the university.

The MSU Office of the Controller has updated the Manual of Business Procedures. MBP Section 53

For moving expenses incurred before January 1, 2018, please contact Payroll (355-5010) to determine payment and reporting method.
