TIA Data

2017 Financial State of St. Louis (Released 1/29/2019)

 
St. Louis' Taxpayer Burden.™ is -$16,700, and received a "D" from TIA.
St. Louis is a Sinkhole City without enough assets to cover its debt.
Decisions by elected officials have created a Taxpayer Burden™, which is each taxpayer's share of city bills after its available assets have been tapped.
TIA's Taxpayer Burden™ measurement incorporates all assets and liabilities, including retirement obligations.
St. Louis only has $616 million of assets available to pay bills totaling $2.3 billion.
Because St. Louis doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $1.6 billion financial hole. To erase this shortfall, each St. Louis taxpayer would have to send $16,700 to the city.
The city is still hiding $267.8 million of its retiree health care debt. A new accounting standard will be implemented in the 2018 fiscal year which will require governments to report this debt on the balance sheet.
The city's financial report was released 175 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.
