The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the district technical staff and interviews with the district political leadership. The findings of study revealed that low local revenue base has negatively affected local governments’ performance. Poverty, ban of graduated tax, tax payers misunderstanding and large public demand are the major causes oflow local revenue. The study recommended that central government should operationalize local services tax and hotel tax, property tax be levied, sensitize the public about the benefits of paying’(axes, government should provide subsidies on agricultural inputs so that production is enhanced which subsequently will raise on local revenue. Finally, graduated tax should be re-instated but the mode of collection should be streamlined so that tax payers pay it with ease.
