Not really. If they give you cash, anything that's not deductible as a qualified moving expense ends up getting taxed. If they pay for services, anything that's not a qualified moving expense has to be reported as income. Usually, this ends up a wash, but the latter could be beneficial in that it reduces one's adjustable gross income, which may affect things like IRA contribution eligibility and deduction phase-out etc.

Things have changed just slightly. We have an office in White Plains so I have the choice to live in New York rather than Jersey. I may well now look at not taking the train to Manhattan every day but get a car into White Plains.

Give me many more options.

Any tips of some nice towns?

Reverse commute from Manhattan? Upper East Side?

Are you looking to stick to public transport?

Tarrytown and Hastings-on-Hudson are nice. And I have a friend who is very happy in Mount Vernon

Wow, when I was offered a job in the US all I got was an H1B and a start date. I paid for my own flight and arrived with 2 suitcases and $3000 in travellers checks which was all the money I had.
