New York owes more than it owns.
New York's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$20,500, and it received an "F" from TIA.
New York 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.
New York only has $140 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $276.6 billion.
Because New York doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $136.6 billion financial hole. To fill it, each New York taxpayer would have to send $20,500 to the state.
New York's reported net position is inflated by $6.7 billion, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 154 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.

JANUARY 24, 2020 | NEW YORK POST | by Ryan Fazio

After the Connecticut General Assembly passed a billion-dollar tax hike in 2015, General Electric warned they might move their corporate headquarters out of the state if then-Gov. Dannel Malloy signed the bill. Malloy went ahead, and the following year General Electric announced the elimination of hundreds of jobs as they packed up the headquarters they’d called home for over 40 years.
