Fix Defects Related To Severance Withholdings

Concerning the correction of statutory defects related to severance tax withholdings from a disbursement to an oil and gas interest owner.
2021 Regular Session
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
State Revenue & Budget
Bill Summary

Under current law, a producer or purchaser is required to withhold an amount from each disbursement made to an interest owner in any oil and gas produced in the state and pay this amount to the department of revenue. The bill fixes defects related to this law by:

  • For purposes of electronic payments, replacing a cross-reference to a repealed subsection with a reference to the current statutory requirement;
  • Expanding the defined term "producer" to be "producer or purchaser" to eliminate a redundancy in the law; and
  • Repealing extraneous references to "oil shale" from the definition.

The bill also repeals obsolete filing requirements that applied prior to July 1, 2007.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
