PROPERTY SALES/AUCTIONS

The State of New Mexico, including all counties, does not conduct tax deed, tax certificate and tax lien sales. The only property sales conducted by the State are public auctions due to three or more years of delinquent property taxes. The State of New Mexico Taxation & Revenue Department, Property Tax Division (PTD) conducts all auctions in the County in which the properties are located. (Foreclosure sales are conducted by banks, mortgage companies and other private organizations.) The following web sites should answer all your questions concerning tax sale auctions in the State of New Mexico:
