Collecting tax perks for a job-related move
It's not unusual to pull up stakes after you land a new job. If your new employer does not reimburse you for your moving expenses, you may still be able to deduct them on your tax return.

Workers routinely and unintentionally put their employers at risk by engaging in sloppy computer security practices. In one recent study, a research team placed 200 USB thumb drives in high-traffic public places in Chicago, Cleveland, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., and tracked what happened to them. Nearly one in five of these small devices were plugged into someone's computer. Imagine if one of these USB drives belonged to your company and contained highly sensitive information.
