Moving and Relocation

At the discretion of the department, a relocation allotment for moving expenses may be offered to the newly hired employee.

All moving and relocation expense reimbursements, whether paid directly to an individual employee or paid indirectly on the employee’s behalf to a third-party vendor, will be considered taxable income to the employee and will have to be reported as income to the employee on Form W-2 in the year the reimbursement is made. For more information, please see the Moving & Relocation Expenses policy document at the Controller’s Office website.

Moving expenses are paid out of departmental budgets.
