Tax Benefits Of Selling Mineral Rights

When considering selling Oil and Gas Mineral rights it is important to understand how it will impact your taxes.

Money made from selling mineral rights is taxed as a “capital gain”. The tax rate on capital gains is 20%.

Why Sell Your Mineral Rights?

Oil and natural gas mineral rights can be very valuable, but are also high-risk investments. As a mineral owner, it is important to understand the scope of the industry, your property’s potential value, and the associated risks that come with this kind of investment. Mineral property can be valuable and profitable if risk is properly managed, but it is important to look at it as you would any other investment and be both realistic and conservative; risk management is the hallmark of successful investing.

The main reason that people sell their mineral rights is because they want a sure thing. Whether it is to pay off a mortgage, money for retirement, or to pay for a child’s education, there are any number of reasons to cash out your minerals. The peace of mind that comes from a huge check is more than enough reason for most.

Knowing the Risks

It is true that some mineral owners will see enormous profits from their minerals; in fact most property owners have probably heard stories about someone who’s raking it in. The truth, however, is that most people will never see that money come their way.

Oil and Gas is a speculative industry. The rapid rising and falling of natural gas prices means that as prices climb, development of leaseholds happen aggressively, and as prices drop, development ends abruptly; that is why it is referred to as a boom bust industry.

Companies may not place an owner’s property in a drill unit for 5, 10, or even 15 years after leasing; in fact most people will not become part of a drill unit at all.
