Rules and Regulations for the State of New Mexico

Sales Tax Law:

New Mexico does not have a sales tax. Instead, it has a “gross receipts tax.” This is a tax levied on the business rather than the consumer, like in most states. However, the business often passes the tax onto the consumer by adding it to the selling price. The rate of this tax varies from 5.125% to 8.8675% depending on where the business is located within the state.

The state of New Mexico requires NPMEX to collect sales taxes on all products sold by NPMEX and delivered to a New Mexico address.

Sales taxes in New Mexico are calculated at checkout on the NPMEX website based on (1) the taxability of products sold by NPMEX in New Mexico set forth above, and (2) the specific tax rates established by the taxing jurisdiction of the delivery address in New Mexico.

Capital Gains Tax:

Gold and silver are subject to capital gains taxation when exchanged for Federal Reserve notes or when used in barter transactions.
