Summary/Abstract: This paper is focused on the analysis of the basic patterns of the municipal revenue in the Czech Republic, especially the trade-off between the tax and fee financing. Data reveals that the Czech municipalities often introduced local coefficient of 2 which doubled the basic property tax revenue. This is the mean value applied for more than one half of the surveyed units. Local fee is often introduced at the level of 500 CZK per capita. It seems that the municipality rather prefers such values, which are used by the vast majority of municipalities.
