US Tax Receipts Signaling Recession?

US federal personal tax receipts receipts are falling fast. So is the Evercore ISI State Tax Survey.

The last two times the survey plunged this much, the US was already in recession.

Is it different this time?

I like to credit my sources. I picked that chart up from Liz Ann Sonders, Senior Vice President, Chief Investment Strategist, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.

In turn, Sonders picked that up from Evercore ISI.

I added the recession bars and comments.

Each month, Evercore conducts a State Tax Receipts Survey across 16 states capturing 64% of the US population.

Unlike Sonders, I am not willing to state second GDP quarter will likely be up vs. first quarter.

Recession?

Many things are outright screaming recession.

I expect huge revisions on numerous fronts. And I am not the only one.
