Indianapolis' Taxpayer Burden™ is -$3,500, and it received a "C" from TIA.
Indianapolis 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.
Indianapolis only has $821.3 million of assets available to pay bills totaling $1.8 billion.
Because Indianapolis doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $955.7 million financial hole. To erase this shortfall, each Indianapolis taxpayer would have to send $3,500 to the city.
Indianapolis's reported net position is inflated by $75.9 million, largely because the city defers recognizing losses incurred when retirement liabilities increase.
The city's financial report was released 202 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
