Universal Citation: NM Stat § 53-5-6 (2019)

A. A corporation may, upon application to the public regulation commission [secretary of state] by the date upon which a report is required to be filed under the Corporate Reports Act, petition the commission [secretary of state] for an extension of time in which to file the required report.

B. For good cause shown, the public regulation commission [secretary of state] may extend for no more than a total of twelve months the date on which any return required by the provisions of the Corporate Reports Act must be filed or the date on which the payment of any fee is required for a specific corporation subject to the Corporate Reports Act. No extension shall prevent the accrual of interest as otherwise provided by law.

C. The public regulation commission [secretary of state] shall, when an extension of time has been granted a corporation under the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986 for the time in which to file a return, grant the corporation the same extension of time to file the required return and to pay the required fees and tax if a copy of the approved federal extension of time is attached to the corporation's annual report. No extension of time granted shall prevent the accrual of interest as otherwise provided by law.

D. Nothing contained in this section shall prevent the collection of any tax, penalty or interest due upon the failure of any corporation to submit the required report.
