Kansas owes more than it owns.
Kansas' Taxpayer Burden™ is -$4,300, and it received a "C" from TIA.
Kansas 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.
Kansas only has $9.5 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $13.6 billion.
Because Kansas doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a -$4.1 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Kansas taxpayer would have to send -$4,300 to the state.
Kansas's reported net position is overstated by $7 million, largely because the state delays recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 153 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.
