Bernalillo County Assessor’s Office Veterans Outreach kicks off December 20, 2018, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Veteran Services (NMDVS).
This is the second year they have partnered with NMDVS to help Veterans learn about the property tax saving programs available to them as a veteran or a surviving spouse.
In the 1st year, they assisted about 80 Veterans.
There are two types of veterans’ exemptions are available:
- Service-related exemption which gives a $4,000 reduction in taxable value of the property.
- 100 percent disabled exemption that relieves the veteran of all property taxes owed on their primary residence.
Subject matter expert from NMDVS will be on site for all 4 outreach events
If the veteran does not have a DD214 they will assist them.
NMDVS will also provide other services that are available to our veterans.
