  • Tax revenue was MXN 116,156 million (0.4% of GDP) below budget since VAT intake was MXN 122,378 million lower as there was an increase of reimbursements and compensations along with MXN appreciation against the USD.
  • Despite public revenue being below budget, the performance of total public spending in the first semester allowed the budget deficit to be approximately MXN 62,923 million below budget.
