There are multiple production periods on your check detail because of prior period adjustments that need to be processed.
The minimum amounts for which 1099s are issued are:
  • Box 1 (Rents) - $600
  • Box 2 (Royalties) - $10
  • Box 7 (Non-Employee Compensation/Gross Working Interest) - $600
1099s for less than these amounts can be requested by contacting the Owner Relations Department using the Contact link in the navigation menu at the top of the page.
1099s are mailed to your address of record on or before January 31.
The IRS does not require the issuance of 1099s for corporate entities unless Box 7 is $600 or more.
A 1099 can be obtained by contacting the Owner Relations Department via phone or email.
Contact the Owner Relations Department using the Contact link in the navigation menu at the top of the page.
Let us know you need another copy.
In addition to your owner number, you will be asked to verify your address and tax identification number.
A copy of your 1099 will then be sent to you.
The values are as follows:
  • Box 1: (Rents) Monies paid for lease bonus, right-of-ways, shut-in royalty payments and water usage.
  • Box 2: (Royalties) Gross payments made on production.
  • Box 7: There are two types of monies that can be reflected here:
    • Gross Working Interest: Your owner type shares in the operating revenues and costs associated with the well. This is most commonly seen along with monies in Box 2.
    • Non-Employee Compensation: Payments made to contractors.
The IRS requires gross royalty amounts be reported in Box 2. Your periodic disbursements are net of production-related deductions and state severance taxes.
If you deduct the taxes and deductions reflected on your 1099 from the amount reported in Box 2, the calculated figure should equal your deposits.
The IRS uses a "constructive receipt" doctrine. Because the payments are issued in December, the figures are appropriately included on the 1099.
Other deductions include your share of expenses incurred to make the products salable and to transport to market, as well as your share of the state severance taxes assessed on production.
We are not able to provide any tax advice and encourage all owners to seek proper tax assistance in preparing their tax returns.
No, federal taxes will not be withheld unless required by statute.
