COVID-19 Response – Assistance with Rates

Lithgow City Council can assist residents who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 situation with assistance to lessen the impacts of rates charges.

Council is legally required to levy rates (under the Local Government Act 1993) and cannot waive rates. We can offer ratepayers a range of assistance measures to lessen the impacts of rates charges at this extraordinary time.

To assist residents, Council will cease charging interest and defer any legal action relating to overdue rates & charges for a 6 month period. Council also encourages residents to set up arrangements to pay by direct debit via Council’s website. Centrepay is available for deductions from Centrelink payments.

Please contact the Revenue team by email at if you have any enquiries.
