ILNA: Iran’s direct tax income has increased by 34 percent in the first half of the current Iranian calendar year compared to the same period in the past year.
The current Iranian calendar year started on March 21.
The direct tax income amounted to 130 trillion rials (about $5.2 billion based on the US dollar exchange rate of 24,900 rials) in the mentioned period.
In August, Iranian Economy Minister Ali Tayyebnia said that tax evasion in the country should be dealt with, IRIB reported.
“We are planning to increase tax incomes, not through raising charges, but through preventing from tax evasion,” he added.
“The goal will be achieved through establishing a comprehensive databank on tax affairs,” the minister said.
“The administration will place the priority on channeling liquidity into the production sector and provide economic enterprises with revolving capital,” he noted.
