Tax Credits for Sustainable Buildings
New Mexico offers a personal tax credit and a corporate tax credit for sustainable buildings in New Mexico. The tax credits apply to both commercial and residential buildings. To receive the tax credit, the building owner must obtain a certificate of eligibility from the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department after the building has been completed. The taxpayer must then present their certificate of eligibility to the Taxation and Revenue Department to receive a document granting the Sustainable Building Tax Credit. If the total amount of a Sustainable Building Tax Credit is less than $25,000, the entire amount of the credit can be applied to the taxpayer’s income tax in that year. If the credit is more than $25,000 the credit will be applied in increments of 25% over the next 4 years. If a taxpayer’s tax liability is less than the amount of credit due, the excess credit may be carried forward for up to seven years. Contact: New Mexico Taxation & Revenue Department, P.O.
