A transferred Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee requested reconsideration of his denied claim for reimbursement for a 2.5-percent loan origination fee he incurred when he purchased a residence at his new duty station. GAO had held that IRS properly reimbursed the claimant for a 1-percent fee. In his request for reconsideration, the claimant contended that the 2.5-percent fee was locally customary. GAO held that the 2.5-percent fee included discounts and point expenses that were not reimbursable. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
