Request for Tax Reports
The Taxation and Revenue Department (Department) may, upon request, provide certain Reports to municipalities and counties.
The Department provides Reports to municipalities and counties pursuant to NMSA 1978, Section 7-1-8.9. Because the Reports contain confidential taxpayer information, the Department will only provide the Reports after a municipality or county has executed a Confidentiality Agreement and the personnel who will review the Reports have undergone confidentiality training.
The Confidentiality Agreement is available at CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT
The Confidentiality Training is available at CONFIDENTIALITY TRAINING
It is the responsibility of the municipality or county to designate the authorized personnel, and to ensure that all authorized personnel have completed and remain current in their confidentiality training.
Once the Confidentiality Agreement is executed and the personnel have completed the confidentiality training, a Report may be requested from the Department by use of this form:

Reports requested pursuant to the above procedure are confidential taxpayer information; thus, local government recipients are bound by the restrictions imposed by Section 7-1-8 et seq., which is the Department’s “confidentiality statute”. Section 7-1-8 prohibits the Department from disclosing information contained in taxpayer returns, except as expressly provided. In accordance with Section 7-1-8.9, the information in the Reports cannot be disclosed by any local government recipient, except as specifically provided by law. The unauthorized release of taxpayer information to anyone may subject you to a fine of $1,000 and/or 1-year imprisonment pursuant to Section 7-1-76 NMSA 1978.
