Each year, the New Mexico Property Tax Division conducts a performance evaluation of every County Assessor’s Office in the state. The evaluation is required by state statute (NMSA 7-35-3A). The Los Alamos County Assessor’s Office was recently evaluated and found to be 100 percent compliant in all areas, with no noted discrepancies.
County Assessor Ken Milder credited the staff in his office for the outstanding results.
“The Los Alamos County Assessor’s Office has consistently rated among the highest in the state for its performance. It is often held up as the model for its outstanding operations. This is because of the training, skill, professionalism and dedication of the office staff under the leadership of Chief Deputy Assessor Joaquin Valdez,” he said.
Residents with questions about the evaluation or any of the services offered by the Assessor’s Office can contact Ken Milder, County Assessor or Joaquin Valdez, Chief Deputy Assessor, at 505.662.8359, or by stopping by their office in Suite 210 inside the County’s Municipal Building.
