Tips for shopping New Mexico’s Tax-Free Weekend

Follow these guidelines for getting the most out of tax-free weekend in New Mexico:
  • If you put an item on layaway, it’s eligible for waived taxes only if final payment and delivery take place during tax-free weekend.
  • Online, mail-order and telephone-order purchases are eligible for tax-free weekend if the item is both ordered paid for during tax-free weekend and if it’s billed to a New Mexico address.
  • Gather your coupons and discounts. Retailer and manufacturer coupons and discounts stack with waived taxes to create an even bigger discount.
  • Some retailers may waive sales taxes store wide, even on items New Mexico law says aren’t included in tax-free weekend.
