    Mr. Benjamin reviewed the major changes to the State Moving Policy and Procedures and Real Estate Relocation Policy. The major changes included removing all references to qualified vs. non-qualified moving expenses. The new tax law makes all moving expenses now taxable.

The only additional change is under the section titled “Sample Agreement” where a provision was added, that states this policy is not to be construed as an employment contract. Under the Real Estate Relocation policy “Option 1- Relocation Company Services” listed under the section titled “Three Agreement Options”, has been removed. Now there will only be two reimbursement options.
