Abstract

This article analyzes the determinants of fiscal potential of municipalities in Mexico. A methodology is proposed that allows the quantification of fiscal effort of states and municipalities; the main contribution is the application of a robust econometric model,the Stochastic Frontier Model, to the analytical determination of the capacity of the 300 most important municipalities of the country to obtain fiscal resources during the period 1992 to 2005, with two logical boundaries: municipalities-capital and municipalities of the interior. One concludes that the municipalities of Mexico can indeed collect more. For more than 13 years (1992 to 2005) a group of municipalities has been realizing an important effort to increase their tax collection efficiency. Nevertheless, a great number of domestic governments have a weak fiscal effort, and thus a low efficiency to collect resources, originating basically from property taxes.
