County Assessor Delivers Tax Schedule


The Bernalillo County Assessor, Tanya R. Giddings, signed and delivered the 2020 property tax schedule to the County Treasurer’s Office, for all real and personal property subject to property taxation. It also includes property within the county valued by the state otherwise known as centrally assessed. The tax schedule will allow the county treasurer to prepare and mail out the property tax bills in November of 2020. These assessed values are based upon market conditions as of Jan. 1, 2020.

“The growth that Bernalillo County has seen over the years, including this past year, provides more benefits for the community, schools and hospitals in the county,” says County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings. “It is expected that the residential market will continue to grow in the coming year.”

The schedule contains the legal description of the property and its location; the property owner name and address and any person or entity other than the owner to whom the tax bill will be sent to; the value of the property determined for ad valorem purposes; the tax ratio; the taxable value of the property, which is one-third of the full value of the property by state statute; the net taxable value of the property after any deduction that a property owner filed and qualified for in the current tax year; any exemption or special method allowed; the allocations of net taxable value to the governmental units; the tax rate in dollars per thousand of net taxable value for all taxes imposed on the property; the amount of taxes due on the described property; and the amount of any penalties and interest already imposed and due on the property.

As a reminder, residents of Bernalillo County can access their property values and other property assessment information by using the search tools made available on the Bernalillo County Assessor website.

The net taxable property values for Bernalillo County saw an increase from $17.2 billion in 2019 to $17.7 billion in 2020.

The totals below represent: real property, manufactured homes, livestock and business personal property accounts. Centrally assessed property is valued by PTD and is included in these totals.

  • Total assessed value: $21.4 billion
  • Total net taxable value: $17.7 billion
  • Total taxable net new value: $61. 1 million
  • Total parcel count: 275,227

Once the assessor presents the tax schedule to the county treasurer, there are limited reasons, by state statute, for making a change to the tax roll. This is usually done by filing a claim for refund in district court no later than 60 days after the first payment of the property tax is due and after payment has been made to the county Treasurer’s Office.

“While the Assessor’s Office works diligently to ensure fair and equitable assessments, we rely on property owners to report any changes that affect their property ownership and mailing information, description, and valuation. In addition, we want them to take advantage of exemptions they may be qualified for and haven’t applied for yet,” County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings says. “We recommend that when the notice of values are mailed to property owners, in the Spring, that you carefully review all the information on the statement, and contact us with your questions.”
