New Mexico is one of many states that updated its economic nexus following the South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. decision. With the passing of New Mexico House Bill (H.B.) 6, the Land of Enchantment adopted a sales tax collection requirement for out-of-state sellers and marketplace facilitators. The below outlines several of the major points in the New Mexico economic nexus requirements.
Threshold applies to the previous calendar year.
Gross receipts from sales, leases and licenses of tangible personal property, sales of licenses and sales of services and licenses for use of real property.
When You Need to Register Once You Exceed the Threshold:
Summary: Remote sellers are required to collect gross receipts tax when their total gross receipts from sales sourced to New Mexico are $100,000 or more in the previous calendar year. Marketplace providers with sales into New Mexico over $100,000 must collect tax on behalf of their marketplace sellers. New Mexico permits marketplace sellers to deduct receipts for sales that are facilitated through a marketplace provider, so long as the seller obtains documentation from the provider indicating that the provider is registered with the department and has remitted or will remit taxes due on gross receipts from applicable transactions.
New Mexico H.B. 6 also extended the gross receipts tax to digital products, which includes “digital product delivered electronically, including software, music, photography, video, reading material, an application and a ringtone.”
