The County Assessor's Office values property (which includes real property; manufactured homes; corporate property; livestock; and business personal property) in order to fund the cost of local government (Torrance County, the Town of Estancia, Mountainair, Willard, Encino and the City of Moriarty) and the public school districts (Estancia, Moriarty-Edgewood and Mountainair), emergency services (sheriff, fire departments and ambulance), and special taxing districts (East Torrance, Claunch Pinto, Carrizozo and Edgewood Soil and Water Conservation Districts).

What We Do

Accept & process reports from property owners.

  • List and identify location of property.
  • Collect, analyze and interpret market and cost trends.
  • We DO NOT tax your property, but value it for property tax purposes.
  • Value property in conformance with professional standards of the International Association of Assessing Officers and the laws of the State of New Mexico.
  • Apply state laws that exempt certain properties and also allow for lower values for long term residential property owners.
  • Report to the property owner the value of their property through the Notice of Value in April annually.
  • Defend the value placed on the property at the Valuation Protest Board.
  • Please remember the assessor's office cannot perfom title searches; you need to contact a local title company to perform a title search of your property.

Example Of Calculating Applicable Tax

The Estimated Property Tax Levy is calculated using the stated price and estimates of the applicable tax rates. The County Assessor is required by law to value the property at its current and correct value, which may differ from the listed price. Further the estimated tax rates may be higher or lower than those that will actually be imposed. Accordingly, the actual Property Tax levied may be higher or lower than the estimated amount. New Mexico law requires your real estate Broker or agent to provide you an Estimate Property Tax Levy on the Property on which you have submitted or intend to submit an Offer to Purchase. Torrance County Assessor having complied with these disclosure requirements shall be immune from liability arising from suit relating to the Estimated Property Tax Levy.
