ABSTRACT The major purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between local governments’ administration performance.and graduated tax in Kiryandongo district; Uganda Specifically the study aimed at determining the impact of abolition of graduated tax on the local governments’ administration performance, to investigate the cauies of challenges due to the abollahment of graduated tax in Kiryandongo district and identify solutions to the problem of low locally raised revenue in the district and the entire country. The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the district technical staff and interviews with the district political leadership. The findings of study revealed that low local revenue base has negatively affected local governments’ performance. Poverty, ban of graduated tax, tax payers misunderstanding and large public demand are the major causes oflow local revenue. The study recommended that central government should operationalize local services tax and hotel tax, property tax be levied, sensitize the public about the benefits of paying’ (axes, government should provide subsidies on agricultural inputs so thatproduction is enhanced which subsequently will raise on local revenue. Finally, graduated tax should be re-instated but the mode ofcollection should be streamlined so that tax payers pay it with ease.
