Indiana owes more than it owns.
Indiana's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$1,700, and it received a "C" from TIA.
Indiana 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.
Indiana only has $24.6 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $28.2 billion.
Because Indiana doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $3.6 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Indiana taxpayer would have to send $1,700 to the state.
Indiana's reported net position is inflated by $1.8 billion, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 172 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.

Understanding the details of county government budgeting process


While we hear more about the federal and state governments for the laws they pass and policy decisions they make, it is the local governments that are responsible for public education, law enforcement, road maintenance, parks, public health programs and more. One good way for people to get a solid understanding of the county government’s activities is to look at its budget.
