A change in state policy that prevented delinquent taxpayers from making partial payments on their property taxes has been rescinded, according to the Bernalillo County treasurer.
“We are able to accept partial payments again and will be happy to help set you up on a payment plan to get you current again,” Treasurer Manny Ortiz said in a news release.
Ortiz’s office began mailing past-due tax notices on Monday.
Payments can be made in person at the treasurer’s office in the basement of One Civic Plaza downtown from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, or mailed to: Bernalillo County Treasurer’s Office, P.O. Box 269, Albuquerque, NM 87103-0269.
Payments can also be made online by visiting www.bernco.gov.
