OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 24.- F. U. Carter, state auditor, is preparing to make a drive on all delinquent in-i dividuals and companies who have neglected to file their gross production tax reports, and who have failed to pay the three percent gross production tax.
’The gross production tax depart-j ment of my office has approximately five thousand live accounts with the oil producers and royalty owners of the state.” says Mr. Carter. “A care-! fill Inspection of the records of the department reveals the fact that there are more than five hundred accounts j whim are delinquent. Some of these accounts are delinquent for a year ' or more, and tax warrants will be issued to the sheriff of the county in which the production is located 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 | value of such interest. Reports must be filed and taxes paid every quarter. Under a recent decision of the supreme court of the United States, however, reports are not required and no tax need be paid on oil or gas produced from Osage or restricted Indian land. Restricted Indian land, is land that is under the supervision of the Department of the Interior.
It Is estimated that $100,000 in gross production taxes are delinquent and unpaid. Delinquent accounts bear interest at the rate of 11% per annum on the amount of tax due until the account is paid.
