Doña Ana County Assessor Andy Segovia will mail 2015 property-valuation notices on April 1, which will include information used to calculate tax bills in November.

In all, about 110,000 notices will be mailed out.  The official mailing date for 2015 is April 1, and the 2015 deadline to file a protest or to claim one or more exemptions is April 30. Exemptions available include those for heads-of-family, veterans, developer discounts and/or valuation freezes for individuals who are 65 years of age and meet state income requirements.

Property owners can use a new automated system – available on the Assessor’s Office webpage – to fill out protest forms and exemption applications. The protest form and other applications can be submitted to the Assessor's Office electronically. All forms can still be submitted in person, faxed or mailed to 845 N. Motel Boulevard in Las Cruces.

Property-tax obligations in 2015 will be based on the taxable value, which is one-third of the full assessed value.

"As County Assessor, I have and will continue to maintain a public-outreach program through which I will host a community meeting on April 9 to educate and assist our taxpayers with the assessment and protest process,” Segovia said.
