According to the Central Bank of Aruba, the Government of Aruba’s total income fell by 48.2 million florins in September of 2020, a decline of 45.0% compared with September 2019.

There was also a 41.4% drop in the tax on income and profits, (down by 12.1 million florins) and a 41.0% drop in turnover tax (BBO/BAZV) (down by 7.3 million florins).
