In the months of January-April 2022, the tax revenues ascertained on the basis of the criterion of legal competence amounted to 148,311 million euros, with an increase of 14,279 million euros compared to the same period of the previous year (+ 10.7%). The significant increase recorded in the four-month period is influenced both by the carry-over of the positive effects on revenues starting from 2021 also thanks to the resumption of payments of installments suspended during the covid. This was stated by the Mef, underlining that the payment in installments could determine revenue effects also in the next few months of 2022. VAT revenues are also increasing while corporate income taxes (Ires) are decreasing.
