SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FTR Bulletin 19-05: Relocation Allowances—Relocation Income Tax Allowance (RITA) Tables for employees who relocated prior to 2015 with reimbursements received in 2018 and new procedures for employees who relocated prior to 2015 with reimbursements received in 2019 or later is now available and (1) provides the tables necessary to calculate the amount of a transferee's increased tax burden for employees who relocated before January 1, 2015 and received reimbursements during calendar year 2018; (2) informs agencies that for employees who relocated before January 1, 2015, and receive(d) reimbursements in calendar year 2019 or later, GSA has determined that agencies will follow the same procedures for those that relocated after January 1, 2015 in accordance with the current issuance of FTR Part 302-17; and (3) notifies agencies that GSA will no longer issue annual FTR Bulletins for RITA tax tables because all relocations with reimbursements received in 2019 or later will use tables published by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), state/district, Puerto Rico, and local tax authorities to compute combined marginal tax rates.
