Bushfire affected residents will receive tax breaks as fire authorities reveal five per cent of Victoria has been burnt, or is still burning.
Premier Daniel Andrews viewed damage at Corryong on Monday and announced immediate relief by waiving stamp duty, land tax and vehicle duty for those impacted by the blaze.
"You can almost feel how intense that fire must have been," he said after driving into the town.
"And to come as it did in the early hours of the morning would have been truly terrifying."
He said the tax relief would apply to those who have had their homes, land and cars destroyed.
The premier said tax relief would be immediately available, but would be assessed on a case by case basis.

"This will apply to lots of different people in lots of different ways, depending on how your affairs are basically organised," he said.
Shipping containers with essential supplies were dropped off at Bright and Harrietville before the weekend's dangerous fire conditions, in case the region was cut off.
Mr Andrews said it was likely more containers would be delivered when needed.
"We've got a long way to go," he said.
CFA chief officer Steve Warrington said there was thousands of kilometres of fire edge in the state which firefighters were trying to track.
"In many ways it's the most dangerous period in the fire fight as well, because our crews start leaving and pushing back into the fire edge, and this is where we have tree falls.
"It is a really, critical time for us."
No lives were lost in Corryong and while homes were razed, properties destroyed, and stock killed, Mr Warrington said "it could have been so much worse."
"Our priority here is saving life, and that's what we will continue to do," he said.
