Bernalillo County’s treasurer says there are no planned deadline extensions for property tax payments amid the Coronavirus pandemic. The next deadline of May 10th is still in effect. Treasurer Nancy Bearce said in an email to the Albuquerque Journal that she does not intend to request a change form the NM Tax and Revenue Department. Paying taxes after the May 10th deadline will trigger a penalty and interest.
For those who pay taxes through their mortgage company, Bearce said, “We understand many mortgage companies are are working with owners dealing with state’s COVID-19 emergency, to make payment arrangements. For all property owners with mortgages that have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, as Treasurer, I encourage property owners to contact their mortgage/ financing company and discuss assistance and options for payments. Currently banking institutions, mortgage and title companies expect to pay all property taxes on time.”
