Changes to the Victorian Government's Fire Services Levy
The Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission recommended the State replace the inequitable Fire Services Levy with a Property Based Levy.
On 1 July 2013, the Victorian Government introduced this new property-based levy to replace the arrangements of raising funds through insurance companies.
The Government's intention for this new property based fire levy is to ensure that all property owners contribute to funding Victoria's fire services, not just those who take out adequate insurance. Find out more about the new fire levy.
