BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina’s tax revenues rose 90 percent in December from a year earlier to 275.542 billion pesos ($17.28 billion), a record high for monthly collections in pesos, the AFIP tax agency said on Monday.
Annual tax collection in 2016 was 2.07 trillion pesos, up 34.6 percent from 2015. The government’s tax intake is increasing as Argentines participate in a tax amnesty program.
