Oil And Gas Operator Property Tax Procedures
Current law requires a county property tax assessor to send a notice of valuation of personal property to the operator of each wellsite, or if there is no operator, to the owner who has filed a statutorily required statement with the assessor.
- States that oil and gas fractional interest owners are not entitled to separate valuation, notification, review, audit, protest, abatement, or appeal procedures by the assessor; and
- Designates the operator of each wellsite, or if there is no operator, the owner who filed the statement, as the representative of all fractional interest owners and as the exclusive point of contact for the assessor for all notification, review, audit, protest, abatement, and appeal procedures.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
