This review utilizes the Partial Least Square (PLS) examination with the assistance of WarPLS 7.0 programming. The results showed that neighborhood income positively affects capital use. General allocation funds positively affect capital expenditure. Moreover, financial development directs or strengthen local government own-source income through capital expenditure.
