The Colfax County Assessor is committed to serving the property owners of the county by complying with New Mexico State Statues and State Taxation and Revenue Department/Property Tax Division Rules and Regulations.

The Assessor utilizes the department budget and available county property valuation program funds to successfully arrive at current and correct values throughout Colfax County.

Adequate funding facilitates successful property valuation programs.
Successful Property Valuation Programs result in current and correct property values as required by New Mexico Law.


1.   Accept & process reports from property owners.
2.   List and identify location of property.
3.   Collect, analyze and interpret market and cost trends.
4.   We DO NOT tax your property, but value it for property tax purposes.
5.   Value property in conformance with professional standards of the International Association of Assessing Officers and the        laws of the State of New Mexico.
6.   Apply state laws that exempt certain properties and also allow for lower values for long term residential property owners.
7.   Report to the property owner the value of their property through the Notice of Value in April annually.
8.   Defend the value placed on the property at the Valuation Protest Board.
9.   Please remember the assessor's office cannot perform title searches; you need to contact a local title company to perform  a title search of your property.

The office of the Colfax County Assessor mails out over 20,000 Notices of Value each year, and receives approximately 1,000 of those as returned mail due to incorrect addressing.  We strongly urge you to verify your contact information with our office.

Verifying this may assist you in avoiding any late fees you may incur from the Treasurer's Office Tax Bill mail out.
