With the 2021 New Mexico Legislative Session just past the halfway point, a number of AARP New Mexico’s priority bills still have a way to go in order to end up on the Governor’ s Desk. This Session seems to be moving slower than year’s past with only three of the 904 bills introduced making it through both houses, as of Tuesday, Feb. 23. Still it is not unusual for things to start moving quickly in the second half of the Session.

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will be operating this year at various sites throughout New Mexico but service will be limited and the process will look a little different this year. “We know how many people rely on Tax-Aide to get their taxes done so we want to be able to offer this vital service in some capacity even if we can’t get to everyone this year,” said Gene Varela, the New Mexico State Coordinator for the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program.
