(Adds details on revenue increase, background)
BUENOS AIRES, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Argentina’s tax revenues rose 30 percent in September from a year earlier to 168.317 billion pesos ($10.99 billion), the AFIP tax agency said on Monday.
The increase in tax revenue largely came from consumption, spurred by still-high inflation in Latin America’s third-largest economy.
The government expects 12-month inflation to fall from 40 percent mid-year to 17 percent in 2017.
