The Bernalillo County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings and the New Mexico Department of Veteran Services (NMDVS) invite New Mexico veterans to the 3rd Annual Veteran Outreach. This year, a representative from the NMDVS will be on-site to issue tax-exemption certificates to qualifying veterans, which can be applied toward the veteran’s property, for tax saving purposes.

The veteran outreach kicks off on Thursday, Dec. 19, and will be on the third Thursday of every month until April 2020, with an additional date on April 23, to ensure property owners applying for the veteran property tax exemptions meet the deadline, which is 30 days after the mailing of the notice of value statements.

“It is important that we honor our brave men and women who protect and serve our country, and as county assessor, I want to ensure that their service and sacrifice are not forgotten,” said Assessor Tanya R. Giddings. “That is why I am grateful for this continued partnership with the Department of Veteran Services, where over the next five months, starting in December, we will work collaboratively to streamline the process and make it easier for veterans to apply for the benefits they have earned.”

There are two veteran property tax exemptions available. Any veteran who served a minimum of 90 consecutive active duty days (other than training), and who was honorably discharged, and is a legal resident of New Mexico, can qualify for a $4,000 reduction in the taxable value of their real property for taxation purposes. This benefit is also available to unremarried surviving spouses of veterans who would have otherwise qualified for this benefit.

There is also a 100% disabled veteran property tax exemption available to any veteran who has been determined to have a 100% total and permanent service-connected disability by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and who is a legal resident of New Mexico. This exemption grants a 100% property tax waiver on the veteran’s primary residence, and the veteran will need to present their award letter from the Veterans Administration to be eligible for the 100% percent benefit.

The veteran outreach events will be held at the Assessor’s Office (501 Tijeras Ave. NW Albuquerque, NM 87102) from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Please visit the Assessor’s website for additional information. Applications are available at Bernalillo County Assessor website or visit the NMDVS website.
