Moving Expenses

College departments may offer to pay a portion of relocation expenses when hiring salaried employees. See Dartmouth's Relocation of New Employees for more information.

Reimbursement for relocation expenses paid to or on behalf of an employee will be taxable to the employee. 

Employee Recruitment Expenses

Before an offer is accepted:
Payment of authorized recruitment expenses (such as airfare, lodging, and meals) incurred during the employee recruitment process are not taxable to the prospective employee.

After an offer is accepted:
After an offer of employment has been accepted, the employee/employer relationship is established and pre-move house hunting expenses (such as airfare, lodging, and meals) incurred by the employee and family are considered taxable income if reimbursed.
