A message from Secretary Stephanie Schardin Clarke:
As Secretary of Taxation and Revenue for the State of New Mexico, I am committed to ensuring that the Department fairly, consistently, and accurately enforces the State’s tax code and motor vehicle laws. We are working each day to foster an environment that values integrity, fairness, consistency, customer service, respect, accuracy, and timeliness.
While we must firmly enforce the tax code and motor vehicle code to the letter of the law, we can do so in a manner that embodies excellent customer service. Our team is working hard each day to recruit and retain an exceptional staff to make that customer service goal possible. Our customers include every single individual and business filing taxes in the State of New Mexico, all New Mexico local governments and political subdivisions, all State agencies, all 112 State Legislators, and the private legal and accounting fields that represent clients in tax matters.
