Assessor's Important Dates
Notice of Valuation
Pursuant to 3 NMAC 6 (7-38-20) "County Assessor and [Department] To Mail Notices of Valuation," all county assessor's offices are required to mail by April 1 of each year, to each property owner informing the owner of the net taxable value of their property that has been valued for property taxation purposes by the assessor.
This is not the tax bill
The Notice of Value provides the property owner the opportunity to ensure that the ownership and property information is correct as well as claiming either the Head-of-Family or Veteran exemptions. The Notice also explains the procedures for filing a valuation protest if a property owner disagrees with the assessed value as set by the County Assessor's office.
Tax Rate Information
Santa Fe County is separated into four school/tax districts. The school districts are identified as: Moriarty, Santa Fe, Pojoaque, and Espanola. If you live in the Cities of Santa Fe and Espanola, you pay a mill rate to fund municipal operational and debt service while still inside the Santa Fe or Espanola school districts.
According to Article VIII, Section 1 of the New Mexico Constitution: "The percentage of values against which tax rates are assessed shall not exceed thirty-three and one third percent." All properties in Santa Fe County are taxed at a third of their market value. For example, a single residence assessed at $150,000 has a net taxable value of $50,000. Certain exemptions maybe deducted from the taxable value. Please see our FAQ section for "Claiming of Exemptions".
