TIA Data

2017 Financial State of California (Released 6/19/2018)

 
California owes more than it owns.
California has a -$22,000 Taxpayer Burden.™
California 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.
California only has $100.1 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $369.9 billion.
Because California doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $269.9 billion financial hole. To fill it, each California taxpayer would have to send $22,000 to the state.
California has delayed the recognition of changes in its pension liability. As a result of this and other deferrals, the state's overall net position is inflated by $16.7 billion.
Despite reporting most of its pension debt, the state is still hiding $58.4 billion of its retiree health care debt. A new accounting standard will be implemented in the 2018 fiscal year which will require states to report this debt on the balance sheet.
The state's financial report was released 264 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
