China's State Administration of Taxation stated that in 2012, tax incomes climbed 11.2 percent on annual basis to $1.76 trillion, reported Xinhua News.

Of the total, $165 billion were export tax rebates, representing a jump of 13.3 percent from 2011, whereas money collected from personal income tax fell 8 percent and the individual business tax income dropped 12.5 percent.
