New Mexico Direct Shipping Applications Available Now and a Must for Wineries

The New Mexico Direct Wine Shipper Permit Application is now available on the state’s Alcohol and Gaming Division website. The state will remain reciprocal until July 1, at which time the new legislation takes effect and wineries must have a permit in order to continuing to ship wine to their New Mexico patrons.

To register for a license, wineries must:

1) Register with the Taxation and Revenue Department Tax for Gross Receipts Tax.

  • Registrations may be mailed in or submitted online.
  • Attach confirmation of the approved Tax Registration (including the assigned “CRS #”), to the Direct Shipper Application.

2) Submit the 1-page Direct Wine Shipper Permit Application.

  • Include a copy of home-state liquor license
  • Include the $50 annual permit fee

New Mexico will not accept Direct Wine Shipping Applications until July 1, when the state’s new legislation officially goes into effect. However, wineries may begin the permitting process now by registering to pay Gross Receipts Tax with the Taxation and Revenue Department.

Once licensed, wineries will be responsible for payment of Gross Receipts and Liquor Excise taxes and reporting. Wineries may ship up to two cases per individual per month.

Please note that the new law allows wine retailers with reciprocal shipping privileges to continue to ship wine to New Mexico residents under reciprocal law. No Wine Shipper Permits will be issued to retailers.

Wineries: Start the application process today and continue to ship into New Mexico.  Save 10% on service fees for your entire order when you order a New Mexico license from Easy Wine Licensing before July 1. Enter coupon code: NM2011 upon checkout for the discount.
