TIA Data

2017 Financial State of New Hampshire (Released 9/25/2018)

 
New Hampshire owes more than it owns.
New Hampshire has a -$5,400 Taxpayer Burden.™
New Hampshire 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 Hampshire only has $2.2 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $5 billion.
Because New Hampshire doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $2.9 billion financial hole. To fill it, each New Hampshire taxpayer would have to send $5,400 to the state.
New Hampshire's reported net position is inflated by $308.2 million, largely because the state defers recognizing losses incurred when the net pension liability increases.
The state is still hiding $1.3 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 175 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered timely according to the 180 day standard.
