For Landowners & Mineral Rights Holders
As a leading oil and gas non-operated working interest enterprise, we are able to assume a degree of additional risk that most mineral owners are unwilling or unable to take on. The strength of our portfolio allows us (and our clients) to reap the rewards of this valuable yet volatile asset class.
By taking a working interest in wells, we are doing more than simply leasing your acreage – we take on all the risks associated with the investment rather than simply collecting royalties.
In many cases, the answer is yes. If you have inherited a portion of an estate’s mineral rights you can sell or lease this to a 3rd party without the consent of other heirs. An exception to this is when you and others are named as equal trustees in a family estate.
Absolutely. When you sell already-leased mineral rights to a third party, they simply assume the terms of the existing lease.
You are under no obligation to sell your mineral rights in their entirety. In many cases, people opt to sell or lease a portion of the mineral rights and maintain ownership of the rest.
Phoenix Capital Group focuses on Mineral Interest, Leasehold Interest, Overriding Royalty Interests, and Perpetual Royalty Interests. For more information on these terms, click here or schedule a free consultation.
Oil and gas royalties are taxed at the ordinary income tax rate, which is among the highest possible. Sale proceeds, on the other hand, are taxed as capital gains and capped at 15%. As your partners, we will gladly work with you (and/or your CPA) to help lower your tax obligations as much as possible.
There can be. As mentioned above, the proceeds from a mineral rights sale will be taxed as capital gains rather than ordinary income. Compared to the taxes on royalties, sale proceeds are taxed at a much lower rate. Another potential tax advantage is the ability to make a strategically planned installment sale and/or defer payments.
An installment sale allows you to sell an asset and receive payments spread across subsequent years. This IRS-approved tactic allows you to strategically claim capital gains taxes across multiple tax years while also collecting interest on the deferred portions of the sale.
The specific timeframe varies on a case-by-case basis, but the answer is always ‘not forever’. Oil production declines steeply at the start of a well’s life and then continues to slowly decline. Eventually, the cost of extraction will be greater than the value of the minerals.
We plan to expand into this area with drilling operations in Wyoming and North Dakota in 2023 – check out our news section for more info.
