ATTENTION All Agriculture/Grazing Customers:

Our internal operating system listed agriculture values as "Manufactured Homes." This affected approximately 2,000 Santa Fe County customers. The grazing exemption was intended to replace the original land value. The exemption displayed on the bill is in error, however, the amount due on the bill IS correct.

Please do not contact the County Assessor's Office regarding this issue. Please contact the County Treasurer's office for any questions at 505-986-6245.
