National Reconstruction Tax is the national tax which generates the least revenue for the state. In the last two years, targets were far from being fulfilled, with 28.2 percent of billing in 2017 and only 17.5 percent last year. By 2018, it was the national tax with the lowest collection, at only 10.7 million meticais.
