The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requested a decision concerning whether a transferred employee should reimburse IRS for storage and transportation costs of his household goods from temporary storage to his temporary quarters. GAO held that the claimant was responsible for transportation costs in excess of the government's costs of transporting the property in one lot from his old station to his new station. Accordingly, IRS should collect the excess costs from the claimant.
