How is revenue generated?

Municipal revenue sources are often divided into two categories: general fund revenues and enterprise funds. While enterprise funds (charges for municipal water and sewer service, municipal gas service and municipal electric service for example) account for more than half of total municipal. General fund revenues), the four highest municipal revenue sources are (1) property taxes, (2) sales taxes, (3) excise and special use taxes (e.g., alcoholic beverage, insurance premiums, hotel-motel, and occupation taxes) and (4) franchise fees.
