Irish January tax take little better than expected - finance minister
February 5, 2013 12:00 AM EST
Figures due for release later on Monday will show Ireland's tax take was a little better than expected in January, the country's finance minister said ahead of the publication of exchequer data at 4:30 p.m. British time.
"The first month's exchequer figures ...will show taxes are coming in as expected on the budget and even a little bit better," Michael Noonan told the Newstalk radio station.
"I would expect that this would be the year that the economy turns."
