The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department provides data on gross receipts and gross receipts tax collected and distributed to counties and municipalities. These are presented according to geographic area and NAICS code for industry sectors and can be found in the Department’s RP-80 and RP-500 reports. According to the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department, gross receipts refers to the total amount of money or other consideration received by an entity from selling property in New Mexico, leasing or licensing property employed in New Mexico, granting a right to use a franchise employed in New Mexico, performing services in New Mexico, and selling research and development services performed outside New Mexico, when the product of the service is initially used in New Mexico. In other words, gross receipts include sales revenue plus revenue from other resources resulting from engaging in business.
New Mexico charges a gross receipts tax on persons engaged in business in the state for the privilege of doing business in the state. Tax rates vary across the state from 5.125% to 8.8125% and the rate is determined as a combination of the rates imposed by the state, the counties, and the municipalities.
