Tasmanian local government taxation consists entirely of the municipal general rate. The fire levy is not treated as revenue of local government in GFS, as it collected on behalf of the State Fire Commission. Only the fees retained for collecting the fire levy are included as local government revenue. Service components of annual rates and charges, such as those for water, sewerage and garbage, are included in sales of goods and services.
