Press Release

Wyoming owns more than it owes
At $26,400, Wyoming's “Taxpayer's Surplus” ranks 3rd out of the 50 states
Wyoming 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
Wyoming has $12.6 billion of assets available to pay the state's bills totaling $7.2 billion
Wyoming has $5.4 billion available after bills have been paid: $26,400 per taxpayer
Because of a new accounting rule, Wyoming now has to report its pension debt on its balance sheet. As a result, the state's reported pension debt grew from $0 in 2014 to $413.7 million in 2015.
The state's financial report was released 171 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day goal
