When to pay resale levy/premium?

How much to pay resale levy/premium?
Well. it really depends on when you sold your first subsidised flat.
This is based on what I remember.

2nd timer who is buying an EC directly from developer needs to pay a resale levy or premium.
There is only one tier of premium for the purchase of an EC which is 20%.
Can resale levy be waived or avoid resale levy?
HDB has waived the accrued interest on the resale levy payable by elderly second-timers who wish to right-size to a 3 room or smaller flat type from HDB. This only applicable if the elderly have sold their first subsidised flat before 03 March 2006 where they will pay only the percentage graded resale levy, with the interest waived.
The only way to avoid resale levy/premium is to buy a resale flat in open market.
If you are 2nd timer and buying your next subsidised flat from HDB, confirm plus chop you need to pay levy. There is no way to avoid paying resale levy/premium.
