Municipalities receive funding for their expenses primarily from taxes and transfers from the state budget. Most of the tax revenues, however, consists of the share of the collected income tax. The rate of it cannot be directly affected by the municipalities. Transfers within public sector serve to fund delagated powers (eg. primary education).
