Senior Executives Association

Welcome to the Senior Executives Association

Senior Executives Association (SEA) is the professional association for career members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) and equivalent positions. SEA is not only the voice of the SES through a strong advocacy program, it empowers senior leaders across government by providing the tools, resources and connections they need to succeed in the 21st century.

SEA's membership spans across government agencies, missions and functions, giving SEA a unique whole of government perspective and the ability to connect to the skills, tools and people (both public and private sectors) that senior leaders need. SEA members receive access to research and news, strategic networks, and connections to the good practices across government that they may not receive on the job.

Above all else, SEA is guided by dedication to public service and to helping career federal leaders better serve the American people.

Statement from GSA on Relocation Tax Expenses Reimbursements

“The General Services Administration (GSA), in coordination with the Internal Revenue Service, has issued guidance authorizing federal agencies to reimburse relocation expenses when an employee is transferred from one official station or agency to another for permanent duty. It also clarifies the requirements of changes to the federal tax code to reduce income tax withholdings from 25 to 22 percent.

"The bulletin gives agencies consistent guidance for covering ‘substantially all’ relocation transactions not previously subject to federal taxes and is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2018. This bulletin will serve as the policy document agencies should rely on for clear interpretation of the updated tax law until GSA issues an amendment to the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR).

"New appointees (including political appointees), employees returning from overseas assignments who will be leaving federal service, qualified Senior Executive Service (SES) members performing a ‘last move home’ and employees assigned under the Government Employees Training Act are not eligible for reimbursement of their tax liabilities.

"GSA will continue to monitor and work with agencies as they adjust their procedures to incorporate the new tax law requirements."
