Data published on Thursday by the General Department of Taxation showed that the estimated State budget revenue last month was VND58 trillion (US4 2,485 billion), equal to only 63.1 per cent of the same month last year.
Of which, revenue from crude oil gained only 25.1 per cent of the same period last year. Domestic revenue is estimated at 65.8 per cent of the same period last year, according to VNA.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on tax collection. The General Department of Taxation has supported businesses to overcome difficulties and have solutions to ensure the revenue target.
The General Department of Taxation said the reason was the Government's nationwide social distancing decision, requiring non-essential businesses to close and others to limit activities, which has affected businesses and State budget revenue in April and May.

In addition, the implementation of the Government’s Decree 41/ND-CP on the extension of deadlines for tax and land use fee payments to support businesses suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic also caused a sharp decline in budget revenues.
The decrease in five-month revenue is also partly attributed to the implementation of Decree 100/2019/ND-CP with severe sanctions for drivers who consumed alcohol. This has led to a sharp decrease in alcohol consumption in many localities.
