Fiscal Postal

Fiscal Postals; From 1 January 1880 to 1 July 1892 all listed postage stamps in Stanley Gibbons & Scott catalogue were available for revenue purposes including ALL stamps issued prior to Jan 1880 [inc SG 1]. This time frame also allowed revenue stamps to be used postally.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Registered & Too Late Revenues

The Registered label of 1861 & 1864 did not pay the postage and was an additional fee for the registered service this can be classed as a revenue. To complicate matters further Queensland also had a 'Too Late' fee, for late posting, unfortunately no stamp was produced and this 'fee' was paid with a 6d postage stamp,  if found on cover the Late Fee paid by a postage stamp can also be classed as a revenue. These fee stamps are listed in SG & at the end of Queensland in the Scott catalogue.

Granite Belt District Levies (Stanthorpe Fruit & Vegetable Levy (prior to December 1958), Apple Levy etc) were usually included in the freight paid to the Commissioner for Railways. For a period around 1936 there was also a Hail Insurance Fund Levy for which stamps appear to have been produced (1d, 2d. 5d & 10d).

Other levies (eg Fig Levy, Cannery Pineapple Revolving Levy, Strawberry Processing Levy) were applied for which stamps were not issued. These levies were collected by payment to the Commissioner of Railways or by deductions from payments made by the COD or COD Factories. The use of levy stamps ceased in June 1961 but the levies continued to be applied until the COD was privatised in the late 1990s
