Sales Taxes

Petroleum Accounting Consultants, PLLC has developed a proven methodology for reviewing invoices for sales taxes that have been inappropriately charged.

The state of Texas has very complex sales tax laws that identify specific charges as being not subject to sales tax or subject to sales tax. The Texas sales tax law can be found at Texas Sales Tax Code.

If you don’t feel the desire to read hundreds of pages of sales tax rules contact our office and we can arrange to perform a sales tax audit for you.We will review your invoices to identify invoices where sales tax was incorrectly charged and file the proper paperwork with the state of Texas to request a refund of the sales taxes erroneously paid.

Each oil and gas producing state has statute of limitations regarding the amount of time that can elapse before a refund claim is submitted. For example, the state of Texas has a four year statute of limitations while Oklahoma limits refund claims to three years. Don’t let the statute of limitations run out on your refund contact our office today.

Oil and gas companies who have production in Texas may be able to save money on sales taxes by self-remitting their sales taxes. The sales tax rate for the state of Texas can have as many as four separate taxes.

1. State sales tax 6.25%
2. Municipal sales tax
3. County sales tax
4. Transit sales tax The municipal, county and transit sales tax can be no more than 2%, thus raising the potential amount of sales tax you will pay to 8.25%.

Our consultants can provide you with more information regarding when sales are subject to municipal, county and transit sales tax. We can provide you with a strategy and help you implement it that could save you thousands of sales tax dollars.

"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."
