Council also collects the Fire Services Property Levy on behalf of the Victorian Government State Revenue Office. The Fire Service Levy rebate $50.00 on the fixed charge for eligible concession card holders.
Council levies a 'Municipal Charge' to cover a portion of Council's administration costs.
This year, the municipal Charge is $100.00. The Municipal Charge applies equally to each assessment.
If you have more than one farming property you may be eligible for an exemption from the Fixed Property Charge portion of the Fire Services Property Levy, as well as the Municipal Charge.
