The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requested a decision regarding a transfered employee's claim for reimbursement for expenses she incurred during a househunting trip that IRS erroneously authorized. GAO held that IRS properly disallowed reimbursement, since it lacked authority for reimbursement of such expenses when either the old or new duty station are located outside of the continental United States. Accordingly, the claim was denied.
