BUENOS AIRES, April 1 (Reuters) - Argentina's tax revenues in March rose to 105.400 billion pesos (US$ 11.95 billion), up 33.9 percent from the same month a year earlier, the government said on Wednesday.

According to the median forecast in a Reuters poll of analysts, the market had expected tax income of 103.750 billion pesos in March.

Private economists estimate annual inflation in Latin America's third largest economy is running around 30 percent, which would mean the increase in tax revenue is largely explainable by an increase in consumer prices. (Reporting by Walter Bianchi)
