Tax Payments

Payment Options

Taxes can be paid in person at the Valencia County Treasurer’s Office at 501 Luna Avenue, Los Lunas NM, 87031, which is located across the street from the Valencia County Administrative Office. Payment can be made by cash, check, cashier’s check, money order, or credit card.

You can also mail your payment in the remittance envelope included with your bill, which is sent to our Processing Center, or mail to the Treasurer’s Office at P.O. Box 939, Los Lunas, NM 87031. Your envelope must be postmarked on or before the due date to avoid interest and penalty charges. Please do not send cash in the mail. Make your check payable to Valencia County Treasurer, write your account number on your method of payment, and be sure to sign your check. Your cleared check is your receipt. A service fee will be charged for any return checks.

VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit cards are accepted in person, on the phone, and online. A convenience fee of $3.95 is charged for VISA DEBIT, $1.75 for e-Check and all other debit and credit cards are 2.5% of the amount being paid.  

Online Tax Payments

The payment processing center we use is eNotices Online. You do not need to sign up for E-notices (which is our email billing service) to pay your taxes online thru E-notices.  Just enter your account number, name or address in the white search bar in the middle of the E-notices screen, hit enter and the system will find your account for you.  From there select the account you wish to pay by putting a checkmark in the box next to the account, enter the amount you wish to pay (first half, second half or custom amount) and select pay at the bottom of the screen.   The system will then open a screen that tells you what the service fees are.  If you wish to proceed, select pay now at the bottom of the screen.  From here a white box will pop up in the middle of the screen, you can choose your payment option here (card or e-check) if you are using a VISA DEBIT, the system will know once you enter your card number.  Proceed to filling out the rest of the form with your card or banking info, along with name and address and you can select an option to receive an email confirmation here as well.  When you are finished, select next at the bottom of the screen, they system will calculate your tax and service fee amount and display that information.  Select pay now and you are finished, you will receive a confirmation code and an email if you selected that option.  

The payment feature is offered by Forte payment systems through E-notices and is a third party vendor who receives the processing fee for the service.
