A candidate's personal traveling expenses or the personal expenses of his campaign workers are not reportable. If a candidate or worker is reimbursed for or provided with transportation by his committee or by another party, the actual cost is reportable. A gift of car tops is valued at the replacement cost at time of transfer. (Issued to William P. Vogel, October 31, 1974)
