South Sudan’s New Tax Body Collects $12.3 Million in First Month

  • Tax agency that begun in January collects only non-oil revenue
  • Oil-dependent nation’s main income collected separately

South Sudan’s tax body that began operations in January collected $12.3 million in the month, according to its head.

It’s a step toward operating “an accountable system for revenue collection,” the National Revenue Authority Commissioner-General Olympio Attipoe said Thursday in an interview from the capital, Juba.
