[Notice-MA-2018-05; Docket No. 2018-0002; Sequence No. 9]


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 Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) Bulletin.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to inform agencies that FTR 
Bulletin 18-06 pertaining to Relocation Allowances--Relocation Income 
Tax (RIT) Allowance Tables is now available online at www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.

DATES: Applicable Date: May 29, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Rick Miller, Office of Asset and 
Transportation Management (MA), OGP, GSA, at 202-501-3822 or via email 
at rodney.miller@gsa.gov. Please cite FTR Bulletin 18-06.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 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 
website. FTR Bulletin 18-06: 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 FTR Part 302-17.
    FTR Bulletin 18-06 and all other FTR Bulletins can be found at 
www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.
