BUENOS AIRES Oct 1 (Reuters) - Argentina's tax revenue jumped 31.1 percent in September from a year earlier to 129.442 billion pesos ($13.741 billion), the government said on Thursday, coming in below the median forecast of 131.063 billion pesos in a Reuters poll.

Private economists estimate Argentina's inflation is between 25 percent and 30 percent, which would mean the increase in tax revenue is largely explainable by consumer price increases.
