Traditional methods of raising revenue have proved too limited and inflexible to permit local govern ments to tap adequately and equitably the resources that are available to pay for public services. The basic difficulty is lack of suitable revenue raising machinery, rather than lack of capacity.One of the main features of our multi-level political system is the assignment of many functions of civil government to the various geo graphical subdivisions of the states.
