Fiscal decentralization is one of the big issues in regional development in Indonesia. Most regions depend on regional tax in pushing their economic growth. Along 2000-2003 the average tax ratio in Medan municipality is 0,40% which means that the authority could only taxing 0,4% of total output in the region. In other hand, the econometric calculation shows that regional tax has negative correlation with economic growth. The local government however has a contrary policy: growth oriented targeting or local revenue targeting. In the future, the leviathan model should be considered for local revenue targeting.
