Tax revenues to the end of April were up €145m (1.3%) year-on-year according to the latest Exchequer figures.
Around €10.945bn has been taken into the Exchequer so far this year, €7m (0.1%) below target.
The Department of Finance said the figures were “broadly” on track to meet expectations for the year.
The figures also show that the Exchequer had received €21m through the Local Property Tax during April, compared to the €1.3m received in March.
More than €5bn has been taken in through income tax to the end of April, €62m (1.3%) higher than the same period of 2012. However this is €58m (1.1%) below target.
The Government blames the weakness on lower levels of deposit interest, or DIRT tax, due to lower deposit rates at the banks.
Over €1.4bn was raised through excise duties in the first four months of 2013, also higher than last year but €44m (3%) behind expectations.
Meanwhile, VAT was flat year-on-year and €105m (2.9%) below target.
Corporation Tax was the only of the four main tax categories to be ahead of target, with €423m raised so far this year - €121m (39.9%) more than anticipated.
The total corporation tax take so far this year is €88m (17.2%) lower than in 2012, however the Department of Finance said this was due to some once-off payments.
Elsewhere, stamp duties had increased €225 million (159.5%) year-on-year, though the Department said part of this was due to timing reasons which would “unwind over the course of the year”.
