JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African tax revenues fell 15 billion rand short of the government’s target in the 2018/19 fiscal year, with revenue estimated at 1.287 trillion rand ($91 billion), the revenue service said on Monday.
South Africa has seen revenue collections fall consistently since 2015 due to weak economic growth and administrative weakness, the latter leading President Cyril Ramaphosa to fire Tom Moyane as revenue service boss in November.
