Who is a qualified remittee?

A qualified remittee is a person who receives oil and gas proceeds from New Mexico wells and who is not a resident of New Mexico. As proof of a New Mexico residence, the Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD) will accept a New Mexico address provided by the remittee as the address to mail federal form 1099-MISC. If the recipient supplies no address for form 1099-MISC, then TRD will accept a New Mexico address to which the actual payment is mailed as proof that the recipient is a New Mexico resident.
