State Tax Performance Through April 2009

From the summary:
The national recession is pummeling state revenues. Those states with heavy reliance on personal income taxes are experiencing deep declines, especially in their April 2009 collections. But other major taxes are faltering, too. Even the handful of states that have weathered the economic decline reasonably well are starting to report adverse revenue developments. Nationally, the news is alarming. More than half the states reported that through April, year-to-date revenues from every major tax source were below collections when compared to the same period last year, and many by significant margins.
