Anchorage's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$6,200, and it received a "D" from TIA.
Anchorage is a Sinkhole City without enough assets to cover its debt.
Decisions by elected officials have created a Taxpayer Burden™, which is each taxpayer's share of city bills after its available assets have been tapped.
TIA's Taxpayer Burden™ measurement incorporates all assets and liabilities, including retirement obligations.
Anchorage only has $838.2 million of assets available to pay bills totaling $1.5 billion.
Because Anchorage doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $658.7 million financial hole. To erase this shortfall, each Anchorage taxpayer would have to send $6,200 to the city.
Anchorage's reported net position is inflated by $45.8 million, largely because the city defers recognizing losses incurred when retirement liabilities increase.
The city's financial report was released 273 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
