Payments could come as early as next week, KRQE reported. This will be the third round of discounts sent to New Mexicans.
Residents who filed their 2021 state taxes as individuals will receive a July rebate if they earned less than $75,000 in adjusted gross income in 2021. Single filers who meet this requirement will receive a payment $250 from the state.
Married couples who jointly filed their New Mexico state taxes for 2021 will receive a July rebate if they earned less than $150,000 in AGI in 2021. For those who meet this threshold, the rebate will be $500.

Rebates are expected to begin processing in the first full week of July, KRQE noted, citing comments from New Mexico Department of Tax and Revenue spokesman Charlie Moore. Since Monday, July 4 is a federal holiday, the first refunds could be processed as early as Tuesday, July 5.
It will likely take a full month for all refunds to reach all eligible taxpayers, Moore said. The state will automatically pay July rebates by direct deposit or paper check. Checks will be sent to those who do not have direct deposit banking information on file with the state.
