Fire Service Levy

The Fire Services Levy, which replaced the previous insurance-based system, is collected by local councils with Council rates, and forwarded to the State Government for funding of Victoria’s fire services.

For specific enquiries regarding the Fire Services Property Levy and your assessment, contact the Council's Rates Department on (03) 5573 0444 or email council@sthgrampians.vic.gov.au

Further information and details regarding the Fire Services Property Levy can be found at www.firelevy.vic.gov.au

For general enquiries regarding the Fire Services Property Levy contact the State Revenue Office at www.sro.vic.gov.au or 13 21 61.

Fire Services Levy Monitor

The State Government has appointed an independent Fire Services Levy Monitor. The Monitor’s role is to ensure the levy is genuinely phased out of the insurance premiums of Victorian households and business.

For enquiries about the removal of the insurance-based levy, which was abolished on 1 July 2013, from your insurance premium, you should contact your insurance company or the Fire Services Levy Monitor at www.firelevymonitor.vic.gov.au or 1300 300 635.
