Bernalillo County issued the following announcement on Nov. 14.
The Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office is notifying property owners that the 2019 property tax statements will be delayed due to the new state law (House Bill 407-2019) allowing school districts a mill levy question on the November election ballot.
Eleven New Mexico counties are affected by the new law, including Bernalillo County.
Adjusted Bernalillo County tax bill dates are as follows:
Dec. 9, 2019- Mailing of property tax bills.
Dec. 19, 2019- Payment due date.
Jan. 19, 2020- Final due date without late penalties and interest.
“This will only affect the first half tax bills and will continue as normal for the second half, when due”, says Bernalillo County Treasurer Nancy Bearce. “Property owners should contact their tax professional for questions regarding how the delay might affect their individual situation.”
This delay will not apply if you are currently on a monthly payment plan or if your taxes are paid through your mortgage company.
Mortgage companies are aware of the delay and will pay taxes as scheduled.
The second half property taxes will continue as before, starting April 10, 2020 with May 10, 2020 as the final due date.
