The Dallas Locality Area is a General Schedule locality primarily located within Texas. Federal employees who work within the Dallas locality area receive a locality adjustment of 24.21%, which is applied to the base General Schedule payscale.

Locality adjustment rates are set yearly by the OPM to account for higher costs of living within Dallas, as compared to the Rest of U.S. locality raise (which is applied to all Federal employees not located within any other locality).

The chart below is the 2019 General Schedule pay table, with Dallas' 24.21% locality raise applied to the base pay rates. These are the yearly pay rates that are applicable to most salaried federal employees within this region, based on their GS Grade and Step.


Note: We have projected the 2020 General Schedule payscale below based on last year's General Schedule base pay increase of 1.4%. We will publish the official General Schedule payscale for 2020 when it becomes available.
