This report is an overview of local government finances and financial management in six councils in Tanzania: Bagamoyo District Council, Ilala Municipal Council, Iringa DC, Kilosa DC, Moshi DC, and Mwanza City Council.

The following themes are covered by the study: (a) the degree of fiscal autonomy; (b) financial management, including budgeting, accounting and auditing; (c) methods of revenue collection; (d) transparency in fiscal and financial affairs; and (e) tax compliance and fiscal corruption. In essence, a small, common database is developed for all the case councils.
