Rhode Island owes more than it owns.
Rhode Island's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$16,100, and it received a "D" from TIA.
Rhode Island 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.
Rhode Island only has $6.5 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $12.6 billion.
Because Rhode Island doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $6.1 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Rhode Island taxpayer would have to send $16,100 to the state.
Rhode Island's reported net position is overstated by $595.2 million, largely because the state delays recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 234 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
