For tax years Jan. 1, 2018 through Dec. 31, 2025, all payments for moving/relocation will be included as taxable income to the employee.
Beginning July 1, 2018, any offer of relocation assistance for new employees will be processed via lump-sum payment, in accordance with the Policy on Relocation Assistance and the Guidelines for Faculty Relocation (.pdf). Employees will be required to sign a Relocation Repayment Agreement form (.pdf). These forms should be submitted to Faculty Affairs through GT-TRACS no later than 10 days prior to payroll running for the month. All lump-sum payments will be paid through a departmental account. For tenured, tenure-track, and research faculty, a commitment to 616 for the lump-sum amount will need to be processed via GT-TRACS.
Refer to the Faculty Relocation Payment Process Flowchart (.pdf) for additional details.
