Alaska owns more than it owes.
Alaska's Taxpayer Surplus™ is $80,000, and it received an "A" from TIA.
Alaska is a Sunshine State with enough assets to cover its debt.
Elected officials have created a Taxpayer Surplus™, which is each taxpayer's share of money available after state bills have been paid.
TIA's Taxpayer Surplus™ measurement incorporates both assets and liabilities, not just pension debt.
Alaska has $37.1 billion of assets available to pay the state's bills totaling $16.3 billion.
Alaska has $20.9 billion available after bills have been paid, which breaks down to $80,000 per taxpayer.
Alaska's reported net position is understated by $2 billion, largely because the state delays recognizing gains resulting from decreases in retirement liabilities.
The state's financial report was released 260 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.

Did your state receive a clean audit opinion? 2022 Update

OCTOBER 22, 2023 | by Chrisitine Kuglin

Every year, for the past fourteen years, Truth in Accounting has released its Financial State of the States report which examines the financial status of the fifty states. This year our report was released on October 11, 2023. One of the data sets we reviewed is the auditors’ reports. Did the state receive an unmodified report for  their Annual Comprehensive Financial Report? Last year I wrote an article for Accounting Today explaining which states did not meet auditing standards for 2021. This is a follow-up to that article.
