This is a press release that has been issued by Lichfield District Cllr Andy Smith regarding council tax hardship relief.

Council tax hardship relief for 1,630 households

In line with the government’s budget announcement in March, Lichfield District Council is working to make sure the council tax hardship fund supports local households that are on a low income.  

In its latest budget, the government announced it would provide local authorities in England with £500 million hardship funding, to support those who are most economically vulnerable during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Lichfield District Council will be using the majority of this hardship fund to provide residents, who are of working age and already receive council tax support, with up to £150 off their council tax bills over the 2020 to 2021 financial year.

It will apply this reduction automatically and will be sending a new council tax bill to the 1,630 households that are eligible for the extra help, as of 1 April 2020.

The council has also set aside a portion of the government funding for any new council tax support claims it may receive.

Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet Member for Customer Services and Innovation, said: “The current lock down situation is understandably causing financial concerns for many of our residents.

“We welcome the additional hardship grant funding from the government, which will help us to provide some valuable financial support to households most in need at this time.”

In addition to the hardship fund, local households on a low income may be eligible for a reduction in the council tax they pay through the council’s existing council tax reduction scheme.

Households that are not eligible for support, can also consider a number of options, including spreading their payments or delaying them to the end of the financial tax year.
