The author(s) disclosed receipt of the following financial support for the research, authorship, and/or publication of this article: In 2014 the Fire Service Levy Monitor, an entity established to oversee the transition of Victoria's fire service levy from insurance policies to municipal rates, entered a funding agreement with the Brotherhood of St Laurence. This agreement arose from levies that 56 insurers continued to collect from consumers after the transition date. The Monitor acknowledged insurer difficulties in refunding all consumers and instead directed that amounts not refunded be used by BSL and several like agencies 'in support of consumer insurance issues'.
