Moving Expenses


The Department of Medicine will provide a faculty relocation award. This award is a one-time lump sum payment to cover the costs for travel, temporary lodging and moving expenses. All moving expense reimbursements are considered taxable income and subject to Federal/State tax withholding.

In accordance with IRS rules for moving expenses, the faculty must have moved at least 50 miles and the move must take place within one year of employment start date.

Who determines the dollar amount that will be paid?

Faculty will work with Mickie Dickrell to obtain a quote from a UW System contracted vendor. Mickie will coordinate with the Division Administrator to confirm final relocation award amount based on that quote and other anticipated expenses related to moving (travel, temporary lodging) and provide next steps for payment of award. Reimbursement can be processed up to 30 days before the move date and will occur via UW e-Reimbursement.
