It is possible to have moving expenses deductive two times during the calendar year.There is so-called "time test":
If you are an employee, 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. If you are self-employed, you must work full time for at least 39 weeks during the first 12 months and for a total of at least 78 weeks during the first 24 months immediately following your arrival in the general area of your new work location. There are exceptions to the time test in case of death, disability and involuntary separation, among other things.
So - the first step - to verify if your deduction is correct - and if yes - to reply to the IRS with explanation of facts and reasoning.If indeed you made a mistake - then - there is no choice - and you will need to agree with IRS's determination and assessment.In this case - if you are not able to pay in full - you may apply for teh installment payment plan.
