LODGERS TAX ADVISORY BOARD

The County of Colfax has established a Lodgers Tax paid by persons using lodging accommodations outside of the municipal limits of any incorporated municipality in the County.  The Lodgers Tax is executed within the content of the Lodgers’ Tax Act, NMSA 1978 §§3-38-13 through 3-38-25 (as amended), Colfax County Ordinance No. 2019-02 (Amended), and through awarding funds to qualified applicants.  The tax is administered in compliance with the New Mexico Department of Finance Administration rules.  For the convenience of the applicants, a Guide was created to assist with interpreting the NMDFA’s rules for the administration of the Tax.  That information can be found below. 

Lodging vendors are required to report lodging receipts by the twenty-fifth (25th) day of each month on County approved forms for the preceding calendar month and to remit payment of the amounts due.  The tax rate is 5% on the gross taxable amount paid for lodging.  See the Lodger’s Tax Ordinance for information on exemptions.  The approved Colfax County forms can be found below.
