Theories on the impact of fiscal decentralization have been thoroughly discussed by Tiebout, Hayek, Musgrave, Oates. Thus, were highlighted the importance and necessity of fiscal decentralization, the allocation of financial resources to local authorities, giving them extra financial power, tipping the balance to the competition between local authorities, which can determine the size of fees and taxes, the level of public expenditure growth decision-making power. The concept of decentralization has been approached from different perspectives overtime and this article will highlight the importance of research on this branch by reviewing the literature
