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 Regulations, Part 302-17, Appendices A through D (FTR 
prior to January 1, 2015--www.gsa.gov/federaltravelregulation--FTR and 
Related Files); instead, the tables would be available on a GSA Web 
site. FTR Bulletin 17-03: 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 FTR Amendment 2014-01 in the Federal 
Register on August 21, 2014, (79 FR 49640), 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 that began on or 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 17-03 and 
all other FTR Bulletins can be found at www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.
