Mississippi owes more than it owns.
Mississippi's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$7,900, and it received a "D" from TIA.
Mississippi 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.
Mississippi only has $11.4 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $17.2 billion.
Because Mississippi doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a -$5.9 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Mississippi taxpayer would have to send -$7,900 to the state.
Mississippi's reported net position is understated by $629.4 million, largely because the state delays recognizing gains resulting from decreases in retirement liabilities.
The state's financial report was released 295 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
