TEHRAN- According to the country’s budget performance report, the government’s tax income during the first half of the present Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22, 2018) has surpassed 500 trillion rials (about $11.9 billion), registering a 16.8 percent increase compared to the same time in the preceding year, Tasnim news agency reported on Tuesday.
