Offer in Compromise – Unfortunately, the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department does not have an Offer in Compromise program available.

Penalty Relief – No, penalty abatement is typically not available.  It will be considered due to death, but even that must be verified.  But, it doesn’t’ hurt to ask.

"The Department may not assess penalty against you for failing to pay tax due when you make a mistake of law in good faith and on reasonable grounds."
