Fire Services Property Levy (FSPL)

The Fire Services Property Levy (FSPL) funds the state's fire services.

Council collects the levy on behalf of the State Government. All property owners must pay the FSPL.

How to pay the Fire Services Property Levy

You'll find the FSPL on your rates notice.

You pay it with your rates and charges to Council who forward the FSPL collected to the State Government.

Calculating the cost

You can calculate your FSPL with the Fire Services Property Levy calculator.

There's a fixed charge for the 2021-22 year of:

  • $114 for residential properties
  • $233 for non-residential properties.

This is added to a variable cost based on your Capital Improved Value (CIV) for that financial year.

There are different variable rates set by the State Government based on how you mostly use your land (your property classification code). These uses include:

  • residential
  • commercial
  • industrial.

Your CIV and property classification code are on your rates notice.

Concession rates

You'll get a concession if you hold a:

  • Pensioner concession card issued under section 1061ZF of the Social Security Act 1991 of the Commonwealth
  • Department of Veteran Affairs Gold Cards (TPI) - Totally and Permanently Incapacitated and War Widows.

If you get a concession on your rates, this applies to the FSPL.

The concession reduces the levy by $50.

Funds allocation

All funds support Victoria's fire services.
