The Treasurer serves as the tax collector for Sandoval County, the State and numerous other tax agencies. The Treasurer's Office does not set assessed valuation, the tax rate or the amount of taxes due. The Office collects and disburses tax collections to appropriate governmental agencies and keeps all books, records and funds pertaining to the office ready for inspection by the County Commission and the State Department of Finance and Administration. The Treasurer, with advice and consent of the County Board of Finance, also has ultimate authority over investment of public funds.
Tax bills are mailed November 1 of each year. At least one-half of the total bill must be paid by December 10 to avoid delinquent charges of interest and penalties. The second-half payment must be paid by May 10 of the following year to avoid delinquent charges.
Property taxes may be paid in person, by mail, through mortgage companies or online . Additionally, the Treasurer works with various banks to arrange payments at local branches.
Delinquency notices are mailed to property owners for any tax bill that is 30 or more days delinquent as of June 30 of each year. The notice will stress that if the taxes, penalty and interest charges are not paid within two years from the date of delinquency, the property records will be transferred to the State and the property will be sold at public auction.
