I don't know if there's any chance I can do this, but I
figured I'd ask:

We forgot to claim my moving expenses from the UK to the US
as a deduction for the 2002 return. I still have the
receipts - can I now claim them on the 2003 return or is it
too late?

As far as I can tell I qualify for the deduction based on
the distance test and the "laid off exception" to the time
test.

Kind regards,

Eiolf

Amend your 2002 return using a Form 1040X. This will have
to be put on that return instead of being claimed for 2003.

I could have sworn I'd already answered this somewhere.

You can't take it on your 2003 return, but you can
amend your (US) 2002 return to include it.
