I was relocated by my company and was paid a lump sum

Hello, I was relocated by my company and was paid a lump sum for expenses and was reimbursed for temporary living, utilities and trips between locations. On a relocation expense summary report, I have those amounts and a tax assistance amount all included as part of my W2 box 1 income. Nothing was listed in my w2 box 12P. My questions are: 1) Is there anything I can deduct like my reimbursement or moving expenses I paid for using the lump sum? 2) This additional relocation assistance places me in another tax bracket. Does that matter? Thank you!
