Conservation Tax

Owners of coal, uranium or geothermal energy in New Mexico are subject to the conservation tax established by Section 7-30 NMSA 1978.

The taxable value of coal is determined under Section 7-25-3 NMSA after royalties paid or due to any Indian tribe, Indian pueblo, or Indian that is a ward of the United States.

The taxable value of uranium is 25% of the difference between the taxable value defined under Section 7-25-3 NMSA 1978 and royalties paid or due any Indian tribe, Indian pueblo, or Indian that is a ward of the United States.

The taxable value of geothermal energy is the value at the point of first sale, less the cost of transporting it from the point of severance to the point of first sale, less royalties paid or due the United States or the state of New Mexico or any Indian tribe, Indian pueblo, or Indian that is a ward of the United States.

The tax rate is nineteen-hundredths of one percent of the taxable value of the product sold. The Conservation Tax returns and payments are due by the 25th day of the month after the month of production.

We deposit the revenue to the Extraction Taxes Suspense Fund, from which refunds may be made. During periods in which the tax rate is .19%, 2/19 of the total collection is deposited in the Oil and Gas Reclamation Fund. The remainder is transferred to the General Fund.
