ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University is seeking a tax refund for its out-of-state athletic events from December 2011 through 2014.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (bit.ly/1OQ9cmT) the school filed a lawsuit last week against the state and its secretary of taxation and revenue seeking more than $282,000 plus interest for “overpayment of governmental gross receipts taxes.”

The suit says out-of-state games amount to interstate commerce and can be deducted from governmental gross receipts according to state statutes.

The university says it erroneously paid governmental gross receipts tax on payments for out-of-state games during the three-year span and filed for a refund in June.

The State Taxation and Revenue Department told the school in November that its refund was rejected.

NMSU filed suit Dec. 29 in Santa Fe County’s First Judicial District Court.
