Japan finmin Aso: Tax revenue may fall short of $570 billion forecast for FY2019


TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Tuesday it was "very possible" that tax revenue would fall short of the 62 trillion yen ($570 billion) forecast for this fiscal year ending next March.

Asked about the possibility of issuing more deficit-covering bonds, Aso told a news conference he was not sure on how to fill any shortfall since it was not clear how big it might be.
