In 2019 I accepted a new job which required relocation. My new employer covered all aspects of my move (movers packing up my house, covering realtor fees for selling my home and buying a new and the other costs associated with that, temporary room and board, as well as a cash bonus for any fees that came up that weren't covered. All was great and everything went smoothly. Happy in my new home and location.

When I received my W2 from them it appears that they have counted all of the reimbursement money/relocation money as earned income. It also looks like taxes were paid on this amount as well.

Is there anything extra I needed to do while filing my taxes? Can I write off the moving expenses even though I was reimbursed for them? Or do I treat it as normal income and fill out the boxes on turbo tax as usual?

Thanks in advance!
