Fukuoka City revealed that tax revenue for the 2016 fiscal year reached a record high, having risen for a fourth consecutive year. Revenue generated in 2016 is expected to be up around ¥4.1 billion on the previous year. Corporate tax has gone down, but an increase in the city’s population has meant a rise in the number of people paying tax. This, coupled with real estate (fixed asset) tax, has been behind the overall increase in revenue. Source: TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting website, 8/1/2017
