Application

USA

The United States government may apply a user charge against identifiable recipients who enjoy special benefits derived from federal activities beyond those received by the general public. [ [http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars/a025/a025.html White House circular] ] User charges should be sufficient to recover the full cost to the federal government of providing the service, resource or good provided by the government. [ [http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars/a025/a025.html White House circular] ] Whenever possible such user charges should be set at rates rather than fixed dollar amounts in order to adjust for changes in costs to the government or changes in market prices for provided goods, resources, or services. [ [http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars/a025/a025.html White House circular] ]
