Notice of Value Statements Were Sent on April 1 to Property Owners in Bernalillo County

04/22/2021

Bernalillo County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings would like to remind Bernalillo County property owners to review their 2021 Notice of Value (NOV) statements that were mailed on April 1.

These statements assign an assessed value to residential and non-residential real property, manufactured homes, commercial properties and vacant land, that will help determine in part the amount of property taxes owed for current property tax year.  Values are effective as of Jan. 1, 2021, pursuant to Property Tax Code Section 7-38-7 NMSA, and based on the analysis of prior year market activity for current and correct values as part of the ad valorem process.

Property owners who disagree with their NOV statement have until April 30 to file an appeal, pursuant to Property Tax Code Section 7-38-24 NMSA. To file an appeal, property owners need to submit a protest form to the Assessor’s Office. Visit www.bernco.gov/assessor and click on the Protest/Appeal process tab where an appeal checklist, appeal portal and other important information to assist with the appeal process can be found.

“I would also like to remind property owners that there is still time to take advantage of property exemptions to be applied to current year taxable valuations,” says Assessor Tanya R. Giddings. “The deadline to file an application for head of family, veteran and the 100% disabled veteran property tax waiver exemptions is April 30, this also applies to the value freeze program.

Applications and qualifications for property exemptions and the value freeze program can be downloaded from the Assessor’s forms page and submitted via email to the Assessor’s Office.  

The Office of the Assessor continues to provide accessibility to the public in a safe manner through its two walk-up windows located on the north side of the building at 501 Tijeras Ave NW, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Assessor’s Office also encourages property owners to contact the Assessor’s Office at 505-222-3700, email at assessor@bernco.gov, or visit www.bernco.gov/assessor for additional information.
