UB Foundation follows the guidelines outlined in IRS Publication 521 regarding reimbursement of business related moving expenses. "Qualified moving expenses" include the cost of moving household goods and personal effects as well as traveling (including lodging but not meals) to your new home. If travel is by car, expenses to be reimbursed can be figured by keeping track of actual expenses (gas, oil) or twelve (12) cents per mile. These items can be reimbursed by UB Foundation. "Non-Qualified moving expenses" include pre-move house hunting trips, meal expenses, and temporary living expenses. These items cannot be reimbursed unless treated as taxable compensation to the individual.
