Vermont owes more than it owns.
Vermont's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$15,400, and it received a "D" from TIA.
Vermont 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.
Vermont only has $6 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $9.8 billion.
Because Vermont doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a -$3.8 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Vermont taxpayer would have to send -$15,400 to the state.
Vermont's reported net position is overstated by $679.3 million, largely because the state delays 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.

28 States Didn’t Have Enough Money to Cover Their Bills in Fiscal 2022: Report

DECEMBER 24, 2023 | PENNSYLVANIA DAILY STAR | by Bethany Blankley

"In fiscal 2022, 28 states didn’t have enough revenue to pay all of their bills, according to the 14th annual Financial State of the States report, published by the Chicago-based nonprofit Truth in Accounting.

The report provides a comprehensive analysis of the fiscal health of all 50 states based on the latest available data from states’ fiscal year 2022 annual comprehensive financial reports.

New Jersey ranked last for having the worst fiscal health and the greatest taxpayer burden. Not far behind was Connecticut, followed by Illinois, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Delaware, Louisiana, California and Vermont in the bottom ten.

By contrast, 22 states reported surpluses, the majority of which are led by Republican governors."
