Some of these accounts are delinquent for a year or more, and tax warrants will be is- sued to the sheriff of. the county in which the production is Ipcated if the tax and penalty are not paid within thirty .days. "Many royalty owners are Ignorant of. the law and are not aware that this tax must be paid. Others have willfully neglected to make their quarterly reports and pay the amount of tax due." Every person, firm or corporation who owns an interest in oil or gas production In this state must make a report and pay taxes on actual cash i value of such interest. Reports must be filed and taxes paid every quarter. Under a recent decision..of the su- preme court of the United States, however, reports are not required and no tax need be paid on oil or gas produced from Osage or restrict- ed Indian land. Restricted .Indian land, Is land thaWs under the super- vision of the Department of the In- terior. It is estimated that in gross production taxes are delinquent and unpaid. Delinquent accounts bear interest at tho rate ot 18% per annum on the amount of tax due un- til the account Is paid.
