TIA Data

2016 Financial State of New Hampshire (Released 5/15/2017)

New Hampshire owes more than it owns and ranks the 25th out of the 50 states.
New Hampshire's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$5,900, and received a "D" from TIA.
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 $2.1 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $5.2 billion.
Because New Hampshire doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $3.1 billion financial hole. To fill it, each New Hampshire taxpayer would have to send $5,900 to the state.
Because of an accounting rule implemented last year, New Hampshire has to report its pension debt on its balance sheet. This year, the state's reported pension debt grew from $834.3 million in 2015 to $898.7 million in 2016.
Despite reporting most of its pension debt, the state is still hiding $1.3 billion of retiree health care debt. A new accounting standard will be implemented in two years, and will require states to report this debt on the balance sheet.
The state's financial report was released 215 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
