General Instructions

The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department grants an automatic six-month extension of time to file until October 15, 2015 if you are filing for a federal extension. Simply check the box on your completed New Mexico PIT-1 indicating that you filed for an automatic extension with the IRS.

You are only required to file for a New Mexico State extension, if you are not applying for a federal extension. Without a federal extension, New Mexico generally grants a 60-day extension of time to file.

To request an extension of time from New Mexico:

  1. Prepare a New Mexico Extension RPD-41096
  2. Do NOT enclose a payment with your extension.
  3. Mail to:
    Taxation and Revenue Department
    PO Box 630
    Santa Fe , NM 87504-0630

An extension to file your return is not an extension of time to pay your taxes.

To avoid interest and penalties you must pay your current year tax liability in full by April 15, 2015 and submit your New Mexico return by October 15, 2015.

IRC (Internal Revenue Code) rate will be charged on any balances remaining after April 15, 2015. In addition you may be subject to the following penalties:

  • Penalty for Late Filing or Late Payment: If you file late and owe tax, or if you do not pay your tax when due, you will be charged a penalty of 2% of the tax due for each month or part of a month the return is not filed or the tax is not paid, to a maximum of 20%. Interest accrues daily on the unpaid balance of tax due and can change on a quarterly basis.
  • Interest Charges: Interest accrues on tax that isn’t paid on or before the due date of your return even if you receive an extension of time to file. The interest rate for 2015 is 3%.

New Mexico requires either a federal extension or a state extension form to be filed whether you owe any additional taxes or not.
