enthalpy is a state property which is a property that is not dependent on the path taken to obtain that state. This means that state properties can be added or subtracted and this like work or heat are not state properties.

Enthalpy is a state property because its value isn't dependent on the path taken to obtain that state

Enthalpy does not dependent on the path taken to obtain that state. An example of a state property would be pressure. However, work and heat are not state properties.
