Anchorage owes more than it owns.
Anchorage's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$100, and it received a "C" 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 $784.2 million of assets available to pay bills totaling $789.5 million.
Because Anchorage doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a -$5.4 million financial hole. To erase this shortfall, each Anchorage taxpayer would have to send -$100 to the city.
Anchorage's reported net position is understated by $198.9 million, largely because the city defers recognizing gains resulting from decreases in retirement liabilities.
The city had not released its FY2022 financial report as of January 15, 2024.
