Province vows to increase local revenue collection

The provincial government of Palawan has vowed to increase its local revenue generation from real property taxation and income generating enterprises and veer away from over-reliance on its Internal Revenue Allocation coming from the national government to finance its development agenda.

Provincial Treasurer Elino Mondragon noted that their collection from gravel and sand extraction, as part of the local sources of fund, has recorded an increase reaching to around P110 million after the Provincial Mining and Regulatory Board (PMRB) set higher fees from the extraction of aggregates.

Mondragon said that the province needs to meet the 40% per annum collection from local sources to be self-sustaining, a task which according to him is difficult to achieve this time.

At present, around 10% to 12% of the annual budget are coming from local sources while the rest are still dependent on the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) and external sources of funds such share from the national wealth.

“The national government is pushing na dapat hindi dependent sa IRA (Internal Revenue Allotment) ang LGU. Highly dependent pa rin tayo sa ngayon IRA,” Mondragon said.

This year’s IRA amounts to P2,372,000.00 a little higher compared to last year which was around P2.1 million.

In 2018, the provincial government has fixed the budget at P P2,698,430,061.00  divided into general public services, social services and economic services.

General services cover offices in the provincial government like Treasury, Accounting including the Office of the Governor. Social services are offices focusing on providing social services like DSWD  while economic services cover infrastructure and income generating offices.

The general public services component of 2018 got a big share amounting to 1,160,737,000.00, social services amounts to P1,080,374,000.00 while the economic services only amount to P457,317,000.00.

Mondragon said that revenue from gas has been consistently high compared to mining.  Last year the province got a P26M share from the Galoc Oil Project in northwest Palawan while mining has paid P7 million.
