US Fiscal Position Records Largest-Ever Improvement
In the 2022 fiscal year, the US budget deficit reached $1.375 trillion, compared with the $2.772 trillion reported in 2021. The $1.397 trillion reduction in the deficit was the largest-ever single-year improvement in the US fiscal position as receipts jumped 21% to a record of $4.896 trillion fueled by a hot economy. Meanwhile, outlays for fiscal 2022 fell by a record $550 billion, or 8% to $6.272 trillion as Covid-19-related spending declined. Still, in September only, the budget deficit widened to $430 billion from $65 billion in the corresponding month of the previous year, well above market expectations of a $173.5 billion gap. Receipts grew by 6.1% to $488 billion, while outlays soared by 75% to $917 billion mainly due to the student loan forgiveness program. In past years, September was often a surplus month due to quarterly corporate taxes payments.

US Budget Gap Widens Sharply in August
The US government budget deficit widened by 29% to USD 220 billion in August of 2022 from USD 171 billion in the corresponding month of the previous year, slightly higher than market expectations of a USD 214 billion gap. It was the biggest monthly budget deficit in over one year as higher spending on education, health services and interest on the public debt more than offset a double-digit increase in revenues. Outlays rose by 19% to USD 523 billion, marking the second growth in spending since the fiscal year started in October 2021. In the meantime, receipts grew by a softer 13% to USD 304 billion amid a sharp increase in individual income tax withholdings. The US federal deficit fell by 65% to USD 946 billion in the eleven months of the 2022 fiscal year.
