The Compliance Bureau performs simple audits of taxpayers on personal income taxes. We use a data warehouse to store and compare third-party information with Department information from the tax processing system to identify taxpayers who may not have filed or who may have underreported their personal income tax.
Internal Revenue Service data are the primary source of third-party information for comparison purposes, but other data sources, such as the Department of Workforce Solutions, Regulation and Licensing Department, the Public Regulation Commission, the Department of Finance and Administration and U.S. Customs are being used for new projects.
We track all New Mexico bankruptcy cases and ensure that proper claims are filed to recover payment for any debt owed to the state and to monitor taxpayer accounts for compliance with current filing and payment requirements.
We also review and track agreements to collect and pay taxes on behalf of another taxpayer and distribute reports to New Mexico counties and municipalities about businesses that report gross receipts in their respective locations.
