Bernalillo County – Bernalillo County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings announces that the Assessors’ Office will send out 264,987 real property 2018 notices of value (NOV), including manufactured homes, to all property owners beginning March 29, informing them of their net taxable value of their property as of Jan.1, 2018.

These assessments will be a factor in determining the 2018 property tax bills the Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office will mail in November of this year. The 2018 notices of value for business personal property and livestock will be sent out to property owners on May 1, 2018.

“It’s important for property owners to review the information on their notice of value, and if you have any questions regarding your assessment contact us before the protest deadline of April 30,” County Assessor Tanya R. Giddings says. “This is also the time for property owners to apply for property tax exemptions that could help lower their property tax bill.”

The Assessor’s Office has a dedicated phone bank set up to help property owners who have questions or need assistance. The number to call is (505) 222-3700. Additional information and frequently asked questions can also be found on the assessor’s website, www.bernco.gov/assessor.

Property owners also have the option to enroll in receiving their NOVs electronically in future years. Instructions on how to sign up have been inserted into the NOV mailings. As always, residents of Bernalillo County can also access their notices of value from the “search assessor records” link on the website.

If a property owner disagrees with the county assessor’s valuation on their property, they have until Monday, April 30 at 5 p.m. to file a protest form. A protest form can be filed online on the assessor’s website, or in person at our office located at 501 Tijeras Ave. NW.

To further assist property owners who wish to file a protest of their assessed value, a protest checklist is provided online, via mail or in person. If residents decide to visit the Assessor’s Office, to assist with downtown parking, there will be free parking in a designated parking lot during the protest period of April. The free parking is located in the alley, north of the Assessor’s Office.

“Whether a property owner is using our easy to use online tools and applications, or they come into our office, they can expect an informative experience with good old customer service.” says Assessor Giddings.

Property owners have until Monday, April 30 to apply for property tax exemptions that could help lower their property tax bill in November. These exemptions include head of family, veterans and 100 percent disabled veterans. Applications for these exemptions can be downloaded from the assessor’s website or picked up in person.
