Can you Deduct Cost of Transporting Car as a Moving Expense?

If you meet the "distance and time test," then you can deduct the reasonable expenses of having your car shipped.

The "distance test" is satisfied if your new principal workplace is at least 50 miles farther from your old home than your old workplace was. The "time test" is satisfied if you are an employee who works full time in the ge...neral area of your new workplace for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months after you move. If you are self-employed, then you are subject to the same 39-week rule, but additionally you must work a total of at least 78 weeks during the 24-month period after you move.

IRS Form 3903, Moving Expenses, is where you claim the deductions. You are allowed transportation and storage of household goods and personal effects along with travel from your old home to your new home. Keep in mind that meals are not includible.
