All Ohio Oil and Gas producers are required to report their annual production for each well for the purpose of valuation and taxation, according to Ohio Revised Code §5713.04, §5713.05 and §5713.06. Beginning with tax year 2016, oil and gas reserves will be taxed using values provided by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Operators are no longer required to file a Ohio Department of Taxation DTE Form 6 or 6A with the Summit County Fiscal Office. Further, all production will be allocated to the primary producer and payment of real property tax will be the sole responsibility of the producer. Our office will not maintain any royalty owner interest-only parcels, unless there is a delinquency associated with the property.
