Tax take down 24% for four months

The latest figures from the Department of Finance show that there was an Exchequer deficit of €7.3 billion for the first four months of this year. This compares with a deficit of €3.7 billion in the same period a year earlier.

Total tax receipts are down almost 24% from a year earlier at just over €10 billion. The Government said earlier this year it was expected a drop of 16% in tax revenue for the whole of 2009

Just want to ask do ye think, that if VAT was reduced would it have helped to improve the figures. just listening past Last word podcast with Brian Lenihan saying that it would have made not difference and about two months ago he say that his biggest mistake was raising the vat rate

Politicians are one trick ponies. Everyone knew raising taxes means less revenue but they can not help themselves. Idiots in the left wing parties will actually totally ignore this reality

Anyone want to try and explain why the Agri budget is up 47% on last year??
Pork???

It is also interesting we are continuing to borrow money to put into the National Pension Reserve Fund!!! €396m in 4 months.

The grant for farm improvements to meet the requirements of the nitrates directive, costing circa €500million - multiples of what was estimated.

I'm not going to defend this government but, equating 16% full year, and 24% for first 4 months, is a little unfair, given that most tax revenue won't accrue until the latter half of the year.

This month alone is the start.

Everyone? A lot of people don't even know if they have enough money to feed themselves this weekend. I doubt they will and a lot of others who have serious financial problems and can't make ends meet.

But don't let that ruin your buzz, because when you are a Blueshirt social conscience goes out the window. What would rui your buzz is keeping up to date with the Eurozone implosion.

Our day will come.
