South Carolina owes more than it owns.
South Carolina's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$13,400, and it received a "D" from TIA.
South Carolina 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.
South Carolina only has $22.2 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $43 billion.
Because South Carolina doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $20.8 billion financial hole. To fill it, each South Carolina taxpayer would have to send $13,400 to the state.
South Carolina's reported net position is overstated by $1.4 billion, largely because the state delays recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 137 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.
