The general aim of the study is to investigate the effects of services delivery on district assemblies’ revenue mobilization with evidence from the Afigya Kwabre South District. The general objective was divided into specific objectives in an attempt to accomplish the purpose of the study. The specific objectives designed were; to examine the impact of services delivery on revenue mobilization in the Afigya Kwabre South District, to determine ways of improving services delivery and the existing revenue mobilization capacity of the district. The OLS estimations reveal that, there exist a highly significant and positive relationship between services delivery and revenue mobilization in the Afigya-Kwabre District assembly. The results also show that, people are willing to pay additional tax for quality services. The respondents however, view that, it would be difficult for the assembly to increase revenue mobilization through enforcement of tax laws and prosecution of defaulters. Based on the findings from the study, the study recommends that quality services should be delivered by the Afigya Kwabre South District Assembly to the residents in the district since they are prepared and willing to pay additional fee for such services. The study further recommends effective and regular tax education to residents of the district in an attempt to clear some bottlenecks to revenue mobilization in the district.
