Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,

Robin D :

The moving expense would be allowed as long as you meet the time test (you must work full-time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months immediately following your arrival in the general area of your new job location)

My 2010 and 2011 tax is under auditing. If empoyer can not issue formal letter to state that they did not reimburse me for relocation, can I use offer letter ?(Offer letter does not include any term for relocation). Thanks.

Yes, you are just wanting to make sure that you have the documentation that shows your moved, you did work for the time required, and you met the distance requirement.
