Property Tax Payments Remain Due April 10, 2020


Following discussions with the State of New Mexico, 2019 second-half property tax payments will remain as scheduled by state statute.  Payments must be submitted by email, deposited in the county drop box at Fifth and Marquette, or mailed and postmarked by May 10 to avoid any assessed penalties or interest.  The Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office does accept the postmark as the payment date.

County Treasurer Nancy Bearce says the county collects and sends taxes to other agencies such as the University of New Mexico Hospital, Central New Mexico Community College, Middle Rio Grande Conservancy District, Albuquerque Public Schools and the City of Albuquerque. Extending collections could have a direct impact on an agency’s ability to operate and its budget.

“We asked the state to extend the deadline, but the decision was to move forward as scheduled,” says Bernalillo County Treasurer Nancy Bearce.  “Bernalillo County residents are not alone as all counties were directed to continue collections as scheduled.”

Treasurer Bearce recommends that any resident, or business owner, who is having trouble making their tax payment contact their mortgage or financing institution to discuss assistance or payment options that may be available.

In addition to property tax due dates, the possibility of waiving late fees for payments received after May 10, 2020 was discussed with the State. There is no provision in state law that allows the County Treasurer to waive late fees.  Please reach out to the Treasurer's Office to discuss possible solutions for your situation such as multiple payments.

The Treasurer’s Office is ready to assist you.
