Nearly 200 people packed Grand Vue Park in Moundsville, West Virginia on Thursday evening for an Oil & Gas Town Hall meeting about “Understanding The County Tax Assessment on Your Oil and Gas Royalties.” The meeting was hosted by the National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) and the oil and gas law firm of Gold, Khourey & Turak.
This is the first of several “Fuel Yourself With Knowledge” series Oil and Gas Town Halls over the next several months in an effort to help land and mineral owners understand their oil and gas rights and oil and gas royalties.
People do not always realize that mineral rights and mineral interest that they own are taxable for property tax purposes. When they started receiving royalty payments, they knew they had to pay a federal income tax on the income, and a state income tax, but they didn’t always realize that the mineral rights and royalties they receive are taxable for property tax purposes also
