Summary: Luis Felipe Uribe, Accountant Director for the government of President Aquileo Parra, here provides the national budget for the fiscal year 1876-1877.
Historical Notes: The fiscal policies changed numerous times during the 19th century. In 1850 the remnants of colonial tribute were completely eliminated, and the government decentralized the taxation system. Due to this fiscal adjustment the state increased its economic budget 165% during the period from 1851 to 1870. The processes of decentralization reduced the administrative expenses of the central government relating to the provinces, freeing funds for the construction of transportation and other infrastructure.
