But Exchequer figures published this evening also show the Department of Social Protection continues to increase its spending.
Overall taxes in January were up €109m year-on-year.
Income tax did well and was up 10%, which the Department said was because the labour market improved late last year.
Stamp duty showed a 400% increase, but that was due to a delay in reporting health insurance products from last year.
Spending during the first month of the year increased also - with Social Protection increasing its spend by 18% or €178.82m on last year.
