Own income

The local government has income from local taxes, such as property tax, motor vehicle tax (provincial surcharges) and tourist tax. In addition, the local government also has income from sales proceeds. This includes not only revenues from e.g. parking fees or rentals of buildings, but also payments for certain permits, fees for passports, and waste levy. A third source of income is capital. This is income from interest on e.g. loans, dividends and leases (income from natural resources).
