Presenter  Vladislav Bukharsky
This article examines the impact of intraregional fiscal decentralization on fiscal incentives for local
governments in the Russian Federation. It is expected that decentralization contributes to the economic
development of territories through two channels: 1) a higher level of budgetary (tax) decentralization
gives more opportunities to local authorities to realize the economic potential of the territory; 2)
stable decentralization of revenue sources preserves incentives for local authorities to realize such
opportunities. In comparison with the widespread approach to measuring these incentives in terms
of gross regional product, the author uses indicators of entrepreneurship, the development of which
is mostly within the competence of local authorities. As a measure and stability of decentralization,
the norms for deducting revenues to local budgets are used. No clear and conclusive evidence of the
impact of decentralization is found: due to the low financial security of subnational budgets overall,
the transfer of standards can rather be understood as financial assistance to the lower budget, in
particular because the size of the average transferred standard grows with the level of subsidies in
the region. At the same time, there are certain positive results: the very fact of the transfer of the
revenues levied in connection with the application of the simplified taxation system is accompanied
by an increase in entrepreneurial activity in the region. A similar effect is exerted by the stability of the
revenues on personal income tax and corporate property tax. In general, it can also be pointed out
that local authorities have low indicators of the level and stability (rigidity) of budget decentralization
