This is the REAL deal we have been telling you about it is now up to you!


The House Ways and Means Committee has announced that they will have their tax reform package completed sometime between Friday October 27th and Wednesday November 1st.

We have not yet seen their language but know we need ALL of you to make calls and let the Committee Members know that percentage depletion is important to you.

Start calling Thursday October 26th and keep calling until next Wednesday, Nov 1 or until we send a message to stop. Yes, call more than once and call everyone!

The message is: "Our family receives royalty payments from the oil and gas production on our property. We understand that you are making decisions about tax reform and what will and will not be maintained in the tax code. Our family depends on our royalty income and the one federal tax deduction (percentage depletion) we are allowed after paying severance tax, state and federal income tax, property tax, state and local taxes. So I encourage you to maintain the percentage depletion deduction for oil and gas in its current form.”

Below is a list of Ways and Means Committee Members we believe you should target.

If none of these are your Representative PLEASE call as many as you can and say that your Representative is not on the Ways and Means Committee but the tax reform issue is important to you as an oil and gas royalty owner and you want the Committee Members to know that you are counting on them to maintain percentage depletion in the tax code.
