GREATER SHEPP, MOIRA TO BE MORE EXPENSIVE PLACES TO LIVE FROM JULY 1

Greater Shepparton and Moira Shire are going to be more expensive places to live from tomorrow due to the Andrews Labor Government increasing a whole range of government fees, fines and charges.
Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell said many fees, fines and charges that local residents incur will rise, including:
•    household water bills
•    drivers licence fees
•    vehicle registration
•    traffic fines, red light and speeding fines
•    light trailer and caravan registrations
•    boat registrations and boat licences
•    recreational fishing licences
•    birth, death and marriage certificates
•    business registration fees
Ms Lovell said this year’s state budget also introduced a number of new or increased taxes that will take effect from July 1, including increased stamp duty on new car purchases, a new stamp duty for off-the-plan purchases, and removal of the exemption of certain transfers of property between spouses.
“Daniel Andrews and his Treasurer Tim Pallas hit Victoria with a high-taxing state budget this year, and the impacts of that are going to start being felt now,” Ms Lovell said.
Ms Lovell said the Premier and Treasurer are continuing to make it hard for rural and regional Victorians, when many are already doing it tough.
“The cost of living is getting higher and higher and less people are able to easily make ends meet,” Ms Lovell said.
“For our local community in the Goulburn Valley, each increase is yet another cost for people to try and cover in their already stretched household budgets.”
