Back Taxes Auction Planned For Santa Teresa Golf Course

Aug 20, 2013

The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department’s Property Tax Division will auction land and houses on Monday, Sept. 9, at 10 a.m. in the Commission Chambers of the Doña Ana County Government Center, 845 N. Motel Blvd., in Las Cruces.

There are 135 properties planned for auction.  Properties from all areas of the county are scheduled for auction, including the Santa Teresa Golf Course and several adjoining lots.

Any parcel that does not receive bids will be placed on a second property auction scheduled for Oct. 17, 2013.

Taxpayers whose properties are up for auction may pay their delinquent property taxes up until the date and time of the auction.  The Doña Ana County Treasurer’s Office is accepting partial payments in advance, but all taxes and penalties due must be paid in full before a property can be removed from the auction list.
