Revenue Processing Division
The Revenue Processing Division (RPD) collects and deposits tax and fee revenues totaling nearly $7 billion annually.
We collect and deposit tax and fee revenues for the state as well as process taxpayer returns and tax refunds. In addition, the division collects and processes certain MVD records and payments, including motor vehicle citations, DWI records and motor vehicle registrations and stickers.
On an ongoing basis, the Division also provides the Department with:
- Form design and development services.
- Support for software developers whose products generate forms, ensuring that the forms comply with the Department’s processing requirements.
- High-speed customized scanning services that can be used with storage and imaging applications. The IBML scanners which can process up to 14,500 documents per hour are also used for decoding barcodes and double-sided imaging.
The Revenue Processing Division provides services to a wide spectrum of the public, individual and business taxpayers, tax practitioners, state, county, municipal governments and the courts.
The programs we administer are governed by the Tax Administration Act, the Motor Vehicle Code, the Uniform Unclaimed Property Act and various tax acts in New Mexico statutes.
