*Disclaimer: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 rate may be higher or lower than those that will actually be imposed. Accordingly, the actual tax levy may be higher or lower than the estimated amount. New Mexico law requires your real estate Broker or agent to provide you an Estimated Property Tax Levy on the Property you have submitted or intended to submit an offer to Purchase. All real estate Brokers and agents who have complied with these disclosure requirements shall be immune from suit and liability from suit relating to the Estimated Property Tax Levy.
