New Mexico delays tax filing deadlines amid virus emergency

Mar 20, 2020

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexicans will have extra time to file and pay their taxes as the state looks to ease the economic hardships brought on by the coronavirus. Officials said Friday that state and federal tax returns will now be due July 15 — 90 days later than the usual deadline. The state also is pushing back the corporate tax deadline. With at least 35 confirmed cases in the state, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has put limits on public gatherings as restaurants have moved to pick-up or delivery service only and casinos have closed. Prosecutors also are seeking more protections in courtrooms.
