Vermont owes more than it owns.
Vermont's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$19,000, 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 $3.9 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $8.4 billion.
Because Vermont doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $4.5 billion financial hole. To fill it, each Vermont taxpayer would have to send $19,000 to the state.
Vermont's reported net position is inflated by $480.2 million, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state's financial report was released 174 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.

The national debt is a ticking time bomb now topping $23.1 trillion – and that isn’t even the total debt that American taxpayers owe. Forty of the nation’s fifty states don’t have enough money to meet their obligations, with a total of $1.5 trillion in growing unfunded liabilities.
