Total tax revenue (excluding local authority taxes) recorded a year-on-year decline of 6.5% in June 2017. Receipts from joint taxes were up by 2.3% on the year. This was driven mainly by receipts from wages tax, assessed income tax and corporation tax, the latter two mainly as a result of the continued rise in prepayments for the current year. However, the growth in revenue from joint taxes was slowed by a substantial 52.3% decline in receipts from non-assessed taxes on earnings. Although receipts from the most important federal taxes posted gains, the nuclear fuel duty repayments of €6.3bn had a severe impact on total federal tax revenues, which fell by 59.9%. Taxes accruing to the Länder also took a hit, with yields dropping by 21.4% as a result of a 51.2% decline in inheritance tax revenue.
