Electronic Tax Filing in New Mexico

 White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.

The New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue has implemented a new E-filing system for filers of CRS taxes. Beginning June 16, 2014, Taxpayer Access Point (TAP) is the new “one-stop shop online tax center.”

According to Taxation and Revenue Secretary Demesia Padilla, “TAP offers several key enhanced features” to help taxpayers and tax preparers manage CRS accounts more efficiently. These include additional security features.

Electronic filers (by choice or mandate) must now file CRS-1 Forms and remit payments via TAP. Additional information.

More and more states are requiring or encouraging electronic filing for sales and use tax:

  • E-filing has been required for sales and use tax in Tennessee since October 2013.
  • Many businesses in Mississippi have been required to file electronically since October 2013.
  • Certain tax returns must be filed electronically in Indiana.
  • In South Dakota, timely electronic filers are rewarded.

As always, it's essential to remit the proper amount of tax. Many New Mexico gross receipts tax rate changes took effect July 1, 2014. An automated tax solution simplifies filing and remittances.
