Oklahoma owes more than it owns.
Oklahoma's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$1,200, and it received a "C" from TIA.
Oklahoma 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.
Oklahoma only has $11.2 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $12.6 billion.
Because Oklahoma doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $1.3 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Oklahoma taxpayer would have to send $1,200 to the state.
Oklahoma's reported net position is inflated by $672.1 million, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 175 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.

Oklahoma City draws some MAPS to avoid public debt


Debt is a very common aspect of life in the U.S. If you own a house, you might be paying off a loan you used to buy it, and it could be years before you’ve finished doing so. Cities do this too for large public projects, except their debt frequently takes shape as municipal bonds.
