The university financially assists new faculty and administrative staff members in relocating to or near Clark County. New faculty and administrative staff who are awarded a full-time, regular position and who are moving to within (45) forty-five miles of Wittenberg are eligible for this benefit. The university provides the following options:
• Option A: The greater of either a lump-sum payment of $800 for in-state relocations and $1,200 for out-of-state relocations, or
• Option B: 50 percent of the actual expenses incurred (up to a maximum of $4,000) in moving furniture and household items. Items such as the transportation of the employee and his or her family, meals, and lodging en route are not covered, and receipts must be submitted for all expenses.
To claim reimbursement for relocation expenses, submit a Relocation Request for Payment Form to the Human Resources department. The relocation reimbursement is reported as taxable wages on your annual Form W-2, and the employee is responsible for all applicable Federal, State and local income taxes. For tax purposes, retain all documentation of your actual moving expenses.
