New Jersey owes more than it owns.
New Jersey's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$58,300, and it received an "F" from TIA.
New Jersey 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.
New Jersey only has $31.7 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $216.9 billion.
Because New Jersey doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $185.2 billion financial hole. To fill it, each New Jersey taxpayer would have to send $58,300 to the state.
New Jersey's reported net position is understated by $40.9 billion, largely because the state delays recognizing gains resulting from decreases in retirement liabilities.
The state's financial report was released 275 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
