Study of Severance Tax

Background

The Department is required to convene a working group consisting of representatives of those localities that levy a severance tax and representatives of those coal, oil, and gas companies that are subject to the tax. The working group is charged with reviewing the methodology for determining gross receipts subject to such tax and other issues related to the imposition of any severance tax.  The working group is to provide a report and recommendations to the Chairmen of the House Committee on Finance and the Senate Committee on Finance by December 1, 2012.
