Abstract: The proper functioning of the communes, as the basic units of local government sector, is directly related to the necessity of maintaining their financial stability. It is defined as the ability of communes to perform their tasks on a continuous and effective basis, regardless of unexpected or unfavorable disturbances of a large scale. Among the total communes, the largest group consists of rural communes. They are distinguished by the varied nature of the functions they perform, from rural communes with typically agricultural character to rural communes with residential and service nature. After Poland’s access to European structures, problems and perspectives of development of rural areas is paid a lot of attention. More and more attention is paid also to the financial condition of these entities, which is an important element of the analysis of the phenomenon of their financial stability. The aim of the article is to analyze the phenomenon of financial stability of rural communes, inter alia on the basis of an analysis of changes in the level of their own income potential, financial result and phenomenon of debt in years 2007–2014. The study was based on data from the Central Statistical Office and the Ministry of Finance.
