2018 Employer Reimbursements for Employees’ 2017 Moves are Generally Tax-Free

The IRS provides guidance in Notice 2018-75 that employer payments or reimbursements in 2018 for employees’ qualified moving expenses incurred prior to 2018 are excluded from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) suspension of treatment as a tax-free benefit. Employers that have already treated these payments or reimbursements as taxable employee compensation can follow the normal employment tax adjustment and refund procedures to adjust withholding and recover refunds of overpayments, where applicable.
