Action Alert
In 2004, the legislature and governor finally repealed New Mexico's regressive and anti-family food tax, which had been instituted as a temporary, emergency measure to raise revenue during the Great Depression. At the time New Mexico repealed the tax, we were one of only eight states that still fully taxed groceries. Today, only Mississippi and Alabama still fully tax food. However, in the wake of the recession, lawmakers are considering measures to reimpose the regressive food tax -- please email Governor Richardson and your legislators and urge them not to burden New Mexico's families with this harmful tax!
