2016 Financial State of New Mexico (Updated 9/18/2017)

2016 Financial State of Albuquerque (Released 1/24/2018)

New Mexico's financial reporting has been inconsistent for the past several years. As a result, its taxpayer burden has been very volatile.
New Mexico's Taxpayer Burden™ is -$9,000, and received a "D" from TIA.
New Mexico 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 Mexico only has $9.2 billion of assets available to pay bills totaling $14.4 billion.
Because New Mexico doesn't have enough money to pay its bills, it has a $5.1 billion financial hole. To fill it, each New Mexico taxpayer would have to send $9,000 to the state.
Because of an accounting rule implemented last year, New Mexico has to report its pension debt on its balance sheet. As a result, the state's reported pension debt grew from $3.6 billion in 2015 to $4.3 billion in 2016.
Much of New Mexico's retirement liabilities are excluded from their balance sheet. The state's total hidden debt amounts to $3.6 billion.
The state's 2016 financial report was released 370 days after its fiscal year end, which is considered untimely according to the 180 day standard.
