Second Half Property Tax Notices Not Affected by COVID-19

Second Half Property Tax Notices Not Affected by COVID-19


Doña Ana County Treasurer Eric L. Rodriguez announced that second half property tax deadline of Monday, May 11 is not affected by COVID-19.

“We made every effort to get relief for taxpayers, but ultimately that was not within our legal authority,” Rodriguez said. The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department decided against extending the payment deadline on a call with several counties Wednesday, April 1, citing that it would hurt cash flows for local taxing entities such as school districts and municipalities. “We want to avoid burdening taxpayers who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Rodriguez said. “That is why we will continue to work with the state and our legislators for subsequent relief options.”

To avoid penalty and interest accruals, property second half taxes are due on Monday, May 11.  Since in-person payment services are closed, the Treasurer’s Office encourages taxpayers to use one of the following payment options:

•     By phone: 575-647-7433, Toll Free 1-877-827-7200 ext. 7433

•     Online at: www.donaanacounty.org/treasurer/payments

•     By mail: P.O. Box 1179 Las Cruces, NM 88004

•     24 Hour drop box: in front of the County Government Center

•     Bill pay: This is a service provided by most banks

For questions or service requests, please contact the Treasurer’s Office:

•     Phone: 575-647-7433, Toll Free 1-877-827-7200 ext. 7433

•     Email: taxbill@donaanacounty.org

•     Mail: 845 N Motel Blvd. Las Cruces, NM 88007

“During these challenging times, we will continue to remain focused on customer service and we will make every effort to respond, in a timely manner,” Rodriguez said.

The New Mexico Economic Development Department has launched a website that pairs shoppers with products and services in a “Buy for Tomorrow Today” campaign to help sustain businesses through the COVID-19 health emergency.  

The “Buy for Tomorrow Today” website (www.BuyNMLocal.com)  is another way for people to support New Mexico businesses during the emergency closures. 

The site offers direct access to individual websites where purchases can be finalized for products or services now, by delivery or take-out, or when the business reopens. 

“We know New Mexicans have loyalty to local businesses and those businesses need our support now more than ever. We hope this website becomes one of many tools that can help businesses through this crisis,” Economic Development Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said. 

The website includes a registration link for businesses who want to participate. Shoppers can sort retailers by region to find a store near them. The State of New Mexico is not a party to the transactions. 

Some of the participating businesses include Iconik Coffee (Santa Fe); TJ’s Diner (Farmington); Gila Bike and Hike and Bluebird Running Co. (Las Cruces). 


Many businesses on the site are also offering discounts or additional value-added services with a purchase on the Buy Tomorrow website. New businesses are being added to the site daily, so check back often to find your favorite local retailer. 

Business can enroll by going to the site an clicking on the upper tab, “Register Your Business.” 


New Mexico MainStreet is also offering a free webinar (registration required) at 1:3o- p.m. on Thursday April 2 for businesses to learn about PayPal setup and other e-commerce resources. This webinar aims to help businesses in NM by promoting e-commerce on the Buy for Tomorrow Today website. You can learn more and register to attend the webinar HERE. 

New Mexico COVID-19 Testing Criteria

New Mexico COVID-19 Testing Criteria

Department of Health announces revised testing criteria for COVID-19

 Guidelines relaxed to allow more New Mexicans to be tested.

SANTA FE –The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) is providing today revised testing criteria announced by Department of Health Cabinet Secretary Kathy Kunkel during Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s news conference Tuesday afternoon.
Thanks to increased statewide testing capacity, the following people may now be considered for COVID-19 testing:
  • Asymptomatic people who are close contacts or household members of New Mexico residents who have already tested positive for the coronavirus;
  • Asymptomatic residents in nursing homes;
  • Asymptomatic people in congregant settings such as homeless shelters, group homes, detention centers;
  • Symptomatic people displaying the COVID-19 symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath.
Previous testing criteria consisted of those symptomatic or a recent out of state or country travel history.
“Studies are suggesting that asymptomatic people may be driving the spread of COVID-19, making it more difficult for containment,” said Secretary Kunkel. “If we can keep more asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients at home and not out in public, the more effective we will be at flattening the curve.”
New Mexicans with health-related questions can call our coronavirus hotline at 855-600-3453. For non-health-related questions or concerns call 833-551-0518 or visit newmexico.gov, which is being updated and finalized as a one-stop source for information.
The state Department of Health updates its dedicated COVID-19 webpage​with additional tests as the state lab provides results.

Stuff the Bus

Zia Country and STS of New Mexico are partnering this year to STUFF THE BUS for Las Cruces Public Schools. Bravo Mic Communications’ family of radio stations and Las Cruces Public Schools coordinate the donation and distribution of new school supplies to students from low-income families. Children on local elementary, middle school, and high school’s Free and Reduced Lunch Programs, and children of low-income families throughout the Las Cruces Public School District receive the supplies to better prepare them for academic success. Items are collected by participating organizations and community members.

Children who receive supplies through this program have the tools they need to begin the school year ready to learn. For struggling parents, providing the necessary school supplies can be a financial hardship. When their children receive school supplies through this program, parents are better able to utilize their limited financial resources to pay for basic needs such as food, utilities, rent, etc.  In addition, children have greater self-esteem when they have the school supplies they need, and the same school supplies as their peers.  You can drop off your donations at our studios located at 101 Perkins Dr during normal business hours.


Every small donation adds up in big ways for our kids!

Here is a list of basic school supplies we are asking for:

#2 pencils & sharpeners
mechanical pencils
pens (blue, black & red)
pink Erasers
bottle glue
stick glue
spiral notebooks
wide ruled paper
college ruled paper
facial tissues
colored pencils
flash drives
pencil bags/boxes
3 ring binders
dividers w/ tabs highlighters
combination locks


Drop off Donations at the Zia Country Studios weekdays 8am to 5pm, or feel free to stop by any of our live broadcasts this summer:
