Please post a specific tax question and I or another expert will be happy to answer.
Thank you for clarifying.
Your unemployment is taxable so that is income. Your moving expenses would need to be that you moved for work purposes. If your move did not occur because you were changing jobs or relocated from your job to another location, they are not going to be used.
The private disability could be taxable but that is if you or an employer paid the premiums. If you paid then it is not taxable if your employer paid the premiums it is taxable.
Job search and medical expenses are amounts that can be on Schedule A. If you do not have more on yoru Schedule A than your standard deduction then there is no other place to claim for those.
The car I will check on.
The cost of structural or operational modifications to your vehicle would be a medical deduction but that too would be on Schedule A under medical. The cost to modify a new car (additional amounts to make it usable by you) but not the full cost of a new car itself.
After you read the above post below and let me know if you need clarification on any specific item.
I am sorry but the car is not a deduction. It would have to be modified specifically and a automatic would not fit into the IRS rules on that.
Although you do not have to meet the time test if your job ends because of disability, you would need to show a new job and the move would still need to meet the distance test (50 miles closer to new job).
