STATE NOTIFIES COUNTY THAT SPACEPORT TAX WILL NOT BE DELAYED

The New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department today notified Doña Ana County that it will begin collecting Spaceport America gross-receipts taxes on Jan. 1, 2008, despite a resolution passed Oct. 10 by the Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners seeking a delay of the tax collection by at least six months.

The Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners will schedule a closed meeting – perhaps as early as Monday, Oct. 15 – to evaluate its options.
