The county Treasurer’s Office mailed past due property tax notices on Monday, June 10, and will begin accepting full and partial payments immediately.
Payments can be made in person at the Treasurer’s Office Downtown, by mail, or online. Last fall, the state forbade all New Mexico counties from accepting partial payments. But now, due to complaints from most counties, the state has changed its policies (NMAC 126.96.36.199) and the Treasurer’s Office can now accept partial payments.
“Come in if you are behind on your payments and we will work with you,” says Bernalillo County Treasurer Manny Ortiz. “We are able to accept partial payments again and will be happy to help set you up on a payment plan to get you current again.”
Each year, Bernalillo County collects more than $600 million in property taxes on more than 270,000 parcels of land. The money is then divided between over 40 entities, including the county, the City of Albuquerque, Albuquerque Public Schools, the University of New Mexico Hospital, and Central New Mexico Community College.

There are currently more than 29,000 delinquent property tax cases in Bernalillo County and Treasurer’s Office personnel want to do everything they can to protect property owners from being transferred to the state because they haven’t paid their taxes in over two years.
