Once this information is submitted, the Budget and Finance Bureau of the Local Government Division of the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration then sets the tax rates, for taxing authority, according to the certified values set and approved budgets.These rates are then used to calculate the appropriate property tax for each taxing authority.
