Civilian Relocation Debt Notification - DFAS has switched the procedure to notify Civilian Relocation customers of a travel related debt. A letter will be sent through E-billing that will allow you to pay the debt in 30 days using the system. This letter will provide a link to and an access code specific to your debt. If you have not paid your travel debt within 30 days, you will receive an additional debt letter with additional options to pay your debt.

In 2018, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made most civilian relocation allowances taxable. This link can help you understand how this may affect you.
