BUENOS AIRES May 4 (Reuters) - Argentina's tax revenue jumped 21.5 percent in April from the same month a year earlier to 112.659 billion pesos ($12.648 billion), the government said on Monday, coming in below the median forecast of 118.368 billion pesos in a Reuters poll.

Private economists estimate Argentina's inflation rate at between 25 percent and 30 percent, which would mean the increase in tax revenue is largely explainable by consumer price increases. (Reporting by Buenos Aires newsroom)
