The ACT Government is taking a range of actions and providing practical support, such as rebates and the freezing of some government fees to reduce pressure on household budgets.
The ACT government will reduce pressure on household budgets by:
- Applying a $150 rebate to the fixed charge component of all residential rates bills in 2020‑21
- Freezing the Fire and Emergency Services Levy in 2020-21 at the current 2019-20 level
- These will be automatically applied to 2020-21 rates bills. You do not need to apply.
- Freezing all 2020-21 vehicle registration, parking and public transport fee increases at the current 2019-20 levels
These will be automatically applied to 2020-21 rates bills. You do not need to apply.
Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
