Are expenses for moving to change jobs tax deductible?

I was in the process of buying a home when I changed jobs to a new city. I forfeited my down payment and paid a settlement to the sellers and lawyer's fees. Are any of these expenses tax deductible?

Hello Stephen,

No. These are non-deductible personal expenses.

Good luck!
