Unfortunately, appropriate land management is a problem for the majority of agricultural land owners, thereby adversely affecting the efficiency of resource use and increasing possibilities for the resource depletion. Constantly new solutions are searched for in Latvia to avert inefficient use of utilised agricultural areas and reduction of land as resource.

The research aim is to assess taxes transferred to the budgets of local governments and to discuss possibilities for the expansion of tax revenues to be transferred to local government budgets. The research leads to the conclusion that the part of personal income tax deductions in local government budgets should be gradually increased up to 100% determining the personal income tax as local government tax thereafter. This could enhance the possibility to increase the financial independency and to strengthen the income base of local governments.
