Hearing Scheduled On Proposed Corporate Income Tax Regulations


The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department will hold a public hearing Feb. 25 on proposed regulations related to the Corporate Income and Franchise Tax Act and the Uniform Division of Income for Tax Purposes Act.

The proposed rules are intended to accompany changes to the tax code enacted in 2019.  The changes eliminated separate entity reporting for C Corporations and made unitary combined reporting the default filing method for such corporations.

More than half of the states in the U.S. now require the combined reporting method for corporate income tax.

The 2019 changes also updated the tax code to assess tax based on sourcing services and intangibles to New Mexico if delivered to a customer in the state or used in the state.

The hearing will take place remotely at 1 p.m. on the Webex virtual meeting platform in order to comply with the state public health order limiting public gatherings.

The public may participate by going to https://nm-tax.webex.com/nm-tax/j.php?MTID=m54ada1b7d3b9821f418e965b12c66135, or by telephone by dialing 1-415-655-0001 and using the meeting number (access code) 132 999 0384 Password 02252021.
