The Department of the Interior requested GAO's opinion on whether federal income taxes paid by personnel of the Armed Forces and civilian employees of the United States on compensation earned while in Guam were for covering into the treasury of Guam for its government or were required to be covered into the Treasury of the United States for the use of the United States.

GAO determined that the federal income taxes involved were for covering into the treasury of Guam.
