Below is a list of commonly requested information about royalty ownership.
Important Tax notice:
For 2020, the IRS created a new form, 1099-NEC. If you receive Working Interest payments or were paid for services, your income will now be on this new form.
If you have Royalty, Rentals, Lease Bonus or other income, your income will continue to be on the 1099-MISC as in prior years.
If you also received Interest Income payments, you will receive a 1099-INT
You could potentially receive multiple tax forms for 2020.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RECEIVED ALL RELEVANT FORMS BEFORE PREPARING YOUR 2020 INCOME TAX RETURN OR PROVIDING DOCUMENTS TO YOUR TAX PREPARER.
All 1099’s will be mailed by February 1st, 2021.
Direct your inquiry to Land Administration if it is an ownership question or to Revenue Accounting if it is a question regarding your check.

Contact the Land Administration Department when there is any type of interest transfer. In the case of a sale, we will require a copy of the recorded Deed or Instrument of Conveyance that has been recorded within the County or Parish where the property is located. If you are dealing with a death, Petro-Hunt will need a copy of the Death Certificate, Will, and Probate documentation that has been recorded within the County or Parish where the property is located. If the Owner died intestate (without a will), you will need to provide a copy of the Death Certificate and complete an Affidavit of Heirship (download form from the forms section). The Affidavit must be completed by a disinterested third party and must be recorded in the County or Parish where the property is located. Any transfer of interest requires that Petro-Hunt be provided with the new owner’s current address and social security or tax identification number.
The banks will not cash a check that is over 90 days old. It is best to return the check to Petro-Hunt, at the address above and to the attention of Revenue Accounting so that it may be voided and reissued.
