"Construction" is defined in General Instructions H-1 (See also Section 7-36-2 C, NMSA 1978). Generally, all out of state construction contractors must report to the State Assessed Property Bureau. In-state contractors who performed construction activity in two or more New Mexico counties during the calendar year must also report to SAPB. Contractors who are located only in one county and perform construction activity only in that county must report directly to the county assessor of that county.
