7 Million more for Department of Revenue and Taxation

Now that the Governor has signed the budget, agencies like the Department of Revenue  and Taxation say they will be asking the legislature for an additional seven million dollars for FY2010.  

Director of Rev and Tax, Art Ilagan says the agency was allocated 10 million dollars, but that chances are, it just isn't going to be enough. "We lack personnel, we lack equipment and this amount of about 7 million dollars more than we are asking should bring in probably 23 million dollars of money annually" Ilagan asserted. He explained, "we lack employees because the pay for our staff is way under the national average." Ilagan also pointed out that a 5 million dollar land appraisal system would generate significant returns to the agency.
