Tax revenue to exceed expectations

So, acutally not so many jobs were created as suggested, else the income tax must have been the biggest growth factor.

If the biggest growth factors were the value-added tax and the fuel excise, then this a jubilation for nothing, but price hikes.

Where we can review the details, Toomas? Reply to the comment answer

Currently it's here:

Looks like social tax income went up 8.5% compared to a year before.

How to achieve this result? Just publish very conservative estimates so afterwards the chance that you will have decreasing tax revenues is quite small. More than a real succes, this a statistical succes. Reply to the comment answer

I see, thanks for the information.

Also interesting, the press release states that the personal income of local governments increased by 8.9%.

So part of the increase of tax revenue is due to an increase of government spending, or am I wrong? Reply to the comment answer

Btw, this press release from yesterday clearly shows, that inflation of consumer price index in Estonia is higher than the average inflation in the Eurozone, and always has been since 2005 (except for most of 2009):

And there is a sharp increase of Inflation just the six months prior adoption of Euro which indicates indeed the assumed price hike claimed by many her, due to Euro introduction.
