Inactive Well Gross Production Tax Exemption

The inactive well exemption from Oklahoma gross production tax came about in 1994 from Senate Bill 841 and Sentate Bill 495 in 1995.  Provides for a refund of 6% out of the total 7% gross production tax for production from wells that have not produced oil, gas, or oil and gas for a period of not less than the 2 years prior to July 1, 1994.  For wells where production was reestablished on or after July 1, 1997 and prior to July 1, 2012, a 1 year inactivity period is required.

Qualifying wells will receive a gross production tax refund for 28 months from the date the production is reestablished.  After June 30, 2003 refunds must be filed within 18 months of the date in which they can first be filed. 

Refunds will not be allowed if weighted average price of Oklahoma oil exceeds $30/bbl. and the weighted average wellhead price of Oklahoma natural gas exceeds $5.00/MCF on an annual calendar year basis.

Testimonials

"I have been extremely pleased with results Petroleum Accounting Consultants, PLLC has obtained for my company. The professional and knowledgeable staff obtained a substantial refund of tax dollars that we would not have had the time or the expertise to recover ourselves.

In order for them to perform their review it took less than one hour of my time. All that was required of me was to show their staff where the well files were and they took it from there. They completed all the necessary filings with the state agency's to obtain the refund and all I had to do was sign the refund checks.

It has been a great pleasure to deal with Petroleum Accounting Consultants, PLLC and we will continue to use their services. I would strongly recommend that all oil and gas operators contact Petroleum Accounting Consultants, PLLC to perform a review of their severance taxes."
