What is New Mexico’s sales tax rate?

New Mexico does not have a sales tax. It has a gross receipts tax instead. This tax is imposed on persons engaged in business in New Mexico. In almost every case, the person engaged in business passes the tax to the consumer either separately stated or as part of the selling price. Only in its effect on the buyer does the gross receipts tax resemble a sales tax. The gross receipts tax rate varies throughout the state from 5.125% to 8.8675% depending on the location of the business.
