Fire and emergency services levy
The Fire and Emergency Services Levy is charged on all rateable properties in the ACT to partly cover the cost of providing fire and emergency services.
The Fire and Emergency Services Levy in 2012-13 is imposed on all rateable properties as follows:
Residential and Rural: Fixed Charge $104.80
Commercial: AUV x 0.4093%
The amount imposed for the Fire and Emergency Services Levy for each property, together with the payment options, are detailed on your 2012-13 Rates Assessment Notice. Property owners have the option of paying their rates and levy assessment in full by the first due date and receive a 3% discount, or by four quarterly instalments throughout the year.
Pensioners eligible for a rates rebate will also receive a 50% rebate on their portion of the levy. Further information about payment and pensioner assistance is available at Rates assistance.
