Federal Travel Regulation (FTR); Relocation Allowances--
Relocation Income Tax (RIT) Allowance Tables

AGENCY: Office of Government-wide Policy (OGP), General Services 
Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Notice of a bulletin.


SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to inform agencies that FTR 
Bulletin 16-03 pertaining to Relocation Allowances--Relocation Income 
Tax (RIT) Allowance Tables is now available online at www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.

DATES: Effective: April 22, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Rick Miller, Office of Asset and 
Transportation Management (MAE), Office of Government-wide Policy, GSA, 
at 202-501-3822 or via email at [email protected]. Please cite FTR 
Bulletin 16-03.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GSA published FTR Amendment 2008-04 in the 
Federal Register at 73 FR 35952 on June 25, 2008, specifying that GSA 
would no longer publish the RIT Allowance tables in Title 41 of the 
Code of Federal Regulation Part 302-17, Appendices A through D (FTR 
prior to January 1, 2015--www.gsa.gov/federaltravelregulaton--FTR and 
Related Files); instead, the tables would be available on a GSA Web 
site. FTR Bulletin 16-03: Relocation Allowances--Relocation Income Tax 
(RIT) Allowance Tables is now available and provides the annual changes 
to the RIT allowance tables necessary for calculating the amount of a 
transferee's increased tax burden due to his or her official permanent 
change of station. GSA published Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) 
Amendment 2014-01 in the Federal Register at 79 FR 49640, on August 21, 
2014, which eliminated the need for the Government-unique tax tables 
for relocations that began on January 1, 2015 and later. However, for 
relocations that began earlier than January 1, 2015, this bulletin is 
required to compute the employee's reimbursement for additional income 
taxes associated with the relocation. For relocations after January 1, 
2015, transferees and agencies must use the tables published by the 
U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), state, and local tax authorities, 
and follow the procedures in the FTR, Part 302-17. FTR Bulletin 16-03 
and all other FTR Bulletins can be found at www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.
