MAY 2017


The oil industry is coming back, slowly but surely and the Four Corners has seen new rigs and new drilling taking place these past few months.

However, as one industry begins to strengthen, another is threatened with the possibility of more than 1,700 coal jobs could possibly go away. Here is an excerpt from an article that appeared on the Four Corners Economic Development website:

We are currently facing new threats to our longstanding coal industry in the Four Corners region. Thank you to all the folks that attended the scoping sessions last week. The San Juan Coal Company (SJCC) mine that serves the San Juan Generating Station (SJGS) was subject to public scoping meetings with regard to an “Environmental Impact Statement” (see below for details).

This study requires them to re-evaluate their impacts on the environment in San Juan County, including the economy. Should this study come back negatively, it could result in the mine and the plant closing as soon as 2019. As such, we need your voice at the table with regards to the positive impacts of the jobs and business this mine generates for the community, as well as how the closure could negatively impact your business or livelihood.

We encourage you to please submit comment with regards to this potential closure through the following channels no later than May 8th:

Are you a business that requires NTTCs (Non-Taxable Transaction Certificates)? An NTTC is commonly used to avoid double and triple-charging gross receipts tax (GRT) as a product goes through production or manufacturing or sales.

For example, you could be buying supplies for your company. If you paid tax to your supplier, then charged tax again to a customer who paid for your product or item, the GRT would have been collected twice. If you do and cannot prove that no tax was owed, you may be liable for the uncollected amount. You may even be accepting official documents from customers stamped by the State of New Mexico saying that they didn’t have to pay tax.
