New Mexico Requires Wineries to Pay Local Taxes on DTC Sales Starting July 1

Effective July 1 2021, New Mexico is moving to destination-based gross receipts tax (GRT) rates and reporting for sales of tangible personal property. Under destination sourcing, wineries that hold a Direct Wine Shipment permit will be required to pay the combined state and local GRT rate in effect at the shipping address on wine sales shipped directly to consumers in New Mexico.

Until July 1, businesses, including wineries, that do not have a physical presence in New Mexico are only required to remit the 5.125% state GRT rate.

Learn more on the Wine Institute website about the taxation change and access links to resources from the New Mexico Department of Taxation & Revenue.
