BUENOS AIRES Dec 1 (Reuters) - Argentina said on Tuesday its tax revenue jumped 27.2 percent in November from the same month a year earlier to 129.489 billion pesos ($13.367 billion).

The figure came in slightly below the median forecast of 131.369 billion pesos in a Reuters poll of analysts.

Private economists estimate Argentina's inflation rate is around 25 percent which would mean the increase in tax revenue is largely explainable by consumer price increase.
