Veterans’ Property Tax Exemption

Any veteran who served a minimum of 90 days consecutive active duty (other than for training), was honorably discharged, and is a legal resident of New Mexico qualifies for a $4,000 reduction in the taxable value of their real property for county taxation purposes. This benefit is also available to non-remarried surviving spouses of a veteran who would have otherwise qualified for this benefit.

In lieu of the property tax exemption, this benefit can instead be used to obtain a 1/3 discount off a vehicle registration fee when registering a vehicle in New Mexico.
