Once approved, reapplication is not necessary in subsequent tax years so long as the use of the property, ownership, boundary lines and mission
of the organization remain without change. Complete and submit this application to the Bernalillo County Assessors Office. The official
application submittal period is January 1, 2020 up to thirty (30) days following annual Notice of Value mailings. Property will be presumed NOT
