The New Mexico State Records Center and Archives holds property tax records for the entire state beginning in the 1870s and continuing, in some cases, to approximately 1929. From 1884 to 1912, these records have been microfilmed and are also retained at the Special Collections Library. The remaining portion consists of original documents. A comprehensive list of tax record holdings, including some poll tax lists, for the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives may be accessed through the 'Online Archive of New Mexico' at

Individual counties have property tax books from 1913 to the present.

Internal Revenue Assessments Lists for the Territory of New Mexico (1862'70 and 1872'74) exist on one roll of National Archives microfilm M781, Record Group 58. This roll is retained at the Special Collections Library.
