All licensed businesses must remit a $6.25 levy to AMVIC for every new or used vehicle they sell or lease to a consumer.

Why does AMVIC charge a levy?

  • AMVIC uses revenue from the levy to fund a Consumer Compensation Fund and to provide investigation and education programs for industry and consumers.
  • The levy has been in place since July of 2010.

Who pays the levy?

  • Businesses pay the levy to AMVIC.
  • Businesses can pass on the cost of the levy to their customers.
  • If a business passes the levy on a consumer, it should show the levy as a separate line item on a sale or lease agreement. Keep in mind, the levy cannot be added to the advertised price of a vehicle as per all-in pricing requirements.
