Many states in the U.S. give unrestricted financial support to their local governments. The reasons some state governments provide aid and others do not, and why a particular mode of revenue sharing is adopted remain unclear. This paper examines Hawaiiâ€™s recent effort at developing a model to allocate the stateâ€™s transient accommodation tax revenues between the State and the county governments. The paper documents the process and explains the rationale behind the model.
