I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that the yield from Tobacco Products Tax and the estimated VAT on Tobacco products for the years 2011 to 2013 are as shown in the table below.  The Value Added Tax receipts are estimated, as the VAT returns do not require the yield from a particular sector or sub-sector of trade to be identified.
