New Mexico uses two types of bar codes on its personal income tax forms. All of the state’s principal personal income tax forms and schedules have a “Form” Bar Code (3of9 Bar Code) printed in the upper right hand corner of the page. This code allows the scanner to identify the form. A “2D Bar Code” is an additional bar code generated by software and printed only on page 2 of Form PIT-Q. The 2D Bar Code is different from the “Form” Bar Code. It appears underneath the “Form” Bar Code on page 2 of Form PIT-Q. You may also check with the tax-preparation-software company to determine whether it supports the printing of the 2D Bar Code for Form PIT-Q.
