|For Use with Allowable Transportation Expenses Table|
|The Operating Costs and Public Transportation
Costs sections of the Transportation Standards are provided
by Census Region and Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). The
following table lists the states that comprise each Census Region.
Once the taxpayer's Census Region has been ascertained, to determine
if an MSA standard is applicable, use the definitions below
to see if the taxpayer lives within an MSA (MSAs are defined
by county and city, where applicable). If the taxpayer does
not reside in an MSA, use the regional standard.
PLEASE NOTE: With the IRS data updated effective March 17, 2008, some MSA’s either changed or were eliminated.
* Does not include personal property taxes.
