Negros’ LGUs budget
cut by P940M in 2012

The Negros Occidental provincial government, and its 13 cities and 19 towns are faced with a P940,585,592 Internal Revenue Allotment cut next year because of poor tax collections during the Arroyo administration three years ago, Provincial Budget Officer  Jose Percival Salado Jr. said yesterday.

That means that the total IRA allotment of P8,974,699,314  this year, will drop to P8,034,113,722 in 2012.

Salado said the Department of Budget and Management released a report on the IRA rates for 2012 to enable local governments to adjust their corresponding budgets.

The IRA shares of local governments for an upcoming year are based on tax collections made three years earlier, he explained.moremoremore
