I have a question about property taxes on mineral interests. SM Energy drilled a well on property in which my owns mineral interests. They started drilling the well in January 2018 and she started receiving royalties last June, so she wasn’t expecting a tax bill in 2018 because she has no production as of 1/1/18. However, she has not received an appraisal notice for her mineral interests for 2019 and she is not showing up on the tax rolls. Is there a reason to worry?
I would appreciate any insight on this issue and suggestions on what she should do. Thank you!!
