Georgia owes more than it owns.
Georgia's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$3,500, and it received a "C" from TIA.
Georgia is a Sinkhole State without enough assets to cover its debt.
Elected officials have created a Taxpayer Burden™, which is each taxpayer's share of state bills after its available assets have been tapped.
TIA's Taxpayer Burden™ measurement incorporates both assets and liabilities, not just pension debt.
Georgia only has $22.9 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $33 billion.
Because Georgia doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $10.2 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Georgia taxpayer would have to send $3,500 to the state.
Georgia's reported net position is inflated by $1.7 billion, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 202 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
