The CAB-05D Report of Personal Property lists all owned leased or rented personal property used in the respondent's operation or used in the conduct of the business in New Mexico. Personal property is tangible property that is not part of, or permanently fixed to, a building or structure. Personal property includes but is not limited to office furniture, machinery and equipment, machinery, equipment, supplies, materials and inventories used in the conduct of your business. Canned computer software is considered to be tangible property. Embedded software is considered to be a part of the machinery or equipment in which it resides. Custom software is considered to be intangible. Report only leased or rented property when the tax liability rests with the lessee.
Personal property inventories that are to be used to produce, manufacture or construct other property, which is then to be sold, are not exempt from property taxation. The following items, when not held by a person as a part of his inventory for sale or resale at wholesale, retail, or on consignment are not exempt from property taxation:
a) Construction materials held by a person engaged in the construction business.
b) Inventories held by a manufacturer for fabrication into manufactured products, and
c) Inventories held by persons engaged in performing services, which are consumed in the performance of the services. However, if the property is not "consumed" in the performance of the service, but is sold as a part of a service in its original form, that property is exempt.
Personal property, which is held by the taxpayer as a part of his inventory for sale or resale, at wholesale, retail or on consignment and is not depreciated for Federal Income Tax purposes, is exempt from property taxation. You must also report all vehicles that do not have a Current New Mexico License Plate that were in New Mexico for 20 days or more.
