How to use this contract 

Moving expense payments

For information regarding university policy, eligibility, and tax information for moving expenses, view MBP Section 53 on the Office of the Controller website. 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017 has changed the taxability of moving expense payments. Beginning January 1, 2018, all moving expense payments are now entirely taxable and must be paid to the employee as a taxable allowance. Moving expenses are not direct billed to the university.

In conformity with IRS regulations, the entire moving expense allowance will be reported as taxable income and included on the employee’s W-2 statement at the end of the year. Applicable taxes will be withheld and reported.

For a new employee, employment forms must be completed (i.e., the employee’s job must be in the HR/Payroll system) before a moving expense allowance can be paid as follows:

For faculty and academic staff, complete an Additional Payment Form to process the Moving Expense Allowance payment. Attach the offer letter or agreement supporting the allowance amount. For support staff, complete a Special Payment Authorization Form to process the Moving Expense Allowance payment. Attach the offer letter or agreement supporting the allowance amount.
