The overall tax revenue of the state budget at the end of July reached €4.918 billion, lagging behind the level approved in the budget by 8.6
percent over the first seven months. The collected amount represented 53.3 percent of the annual projection, according to the Slovak Finance Directorate.

At the end of July, the non-tax revenue of the budget was €145.3 million.

The treasury collected €1.308 billion in taxes on income, profits and capital gains, representing 99.2 percent of the expected revenue. In local taxes on goods and services the state budget collected €3.58 billion and met the plan to 89.2 percent. Taxes on international trade and transactions brought more than €17.5 million to the budget.

Among the local taxes on goods and services collected, the treasury collected €2.457 billion in Value Added Tax (VAT) in seven months of 2012, representing 87.44 percent of the expected amount. State budget revenue from excise duties was €1.123 billion after 7 months. Based on the state budget law for 2012, tax revenue this year should be €9.228 billion. Overall revenue of the state budget should be €13.6 billion and expenditures €17.3 billion. The state budget deficit could thus be a
little more than €3.6 billion.
