The Challenge of Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations in Pakistan: The Property Tax Division
In this paper, we report the current state of provincial revenue raising and analyze the potential for increased revenue mobilization. In the sections below, we document the current situation regarding local revenue capacity and mobilization in Pakistan using case studies of Punjab and North-West Frontier Province. We provide an analysis of the difficulties of decentralization in Pakistan, but also the potential for moving the decentralization efforts forward by providing a closer match between expenditure responsibilities and revenue capacity. The contribution here, we think, is in showing how much revenue potential is to be realized with structural and administrative reforms that are in step with international practice. We illustrate this with the property tax.
