Lea County Treasurer
The Treasurer is the elected tax collector of Lea County - and not just for the county government - but for the municipalities, school districts, the State of New Mexico, and other taxing entities within Lea County's borders. Upon the County Assessor's assessed valuation, the Treasurer's Office prepares and mails property tax bills and delinquency notices, and subsequently collects the real and personal property taxes of Lea County property owners.
The Treasurer also serves as a banker to all other revenues, such as proceeds from bond issues and special assessments. The Treasurer invests surplus funds until they are needed for county operations.
We are proud to offer Lea County property owners the convenience of paying tax bills online.
There is a 2.45% fee for using this service. With a minimum fee of $2.
