Under the authority of City Code 3-2C, the city has established a lodger's tax paid by persons using commercial lodging accommodations. Lodger's tax provides revenues for the purposes of:

  • advertising, publicizing and promoting facilities, tourist attractions; and 
  • acquisition, construction and maintenance of certain facilities related to tourism.  

The tax is administered in compliance with the New Mexico Department of Finance Administration rules. Allowed uses are specified in New Mexico Statutes Annotated section 3-38-21 as amended in 2016. To view this click here and type in the section number.

Lodging operators are required to report lodging receipts by the twenty-fifth day of each month on city-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.
