2015 Data (Released 09/19/2016)

Financial State of Nebraska

Press Release

Financial State of Omaha

Nebraska owns more than it owes
At $3,500, Nebraska's “Taxpayer's Surplus” ranks 5th out of the 50 states
Nebraska is among 10 “Sunshine States” with enough assets to cover its debt
Elected officials have created a Taxpayer Surplus, which is each taxpayer's share of money available after state bills have been paid
TIA's Taxpayer Surplus measurement incorporates both assets and liabilities, not just pension debt
Nebraska has $4.8 billion of assets available to pay the state's bills totaling $2.6 billion
Nebraska has $2.2 billion available after bills have been paid: $3,500 per taxpayer
Because of a new accounting rule, Nebraska now has to report its pension debt on its balance sheet. As a result, the state's reported pension debt grew from $941,000 in 2014 to $181.7 million in 2015. However, the state is still hiding $25.1 million of pension debt from taxpayers.
The state's financial report was released 170 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day goal
