According to the State Dept of Taxation counties are not supposed to be taxing severed mineral rights until there is production but where there's possible money, they'll figure out a way to tax.

Nice to see you back posting Peter and thanks for the help. Sillytubby, the article that you made reference to was quite comprehensive and I hope everybody understood it. It is my understanding that some counties in Ohio have started taxing severed mineral rights regardless of whether there is any income being derived from those minerals. I know this was being considered by Carroll County but am not sure if they actually started issuing separate tax statements.

Here's the address for the Ohio Farm Bureau News of 10/16/14  (with a pdf format)   

 I concur with Al's advice about estate planning if you care about your heirs. I also recommend that you consider joining the OFB because they support many landowner interests with a strong presence in our state government.

Here's an article that might be of interest, tho it is not a Farm Bureau article.

Is anyone out there being taxed on separated minerals that haven't been tapped into by an o/g company.

Finnbear, I surf the web at least one hour every morning and it was over two weeks ago I saw that article. Sorry, but I don't want to take the time to go search for it again.

I recently read an article published by the Ohio Farm Bureau which discussed the importance of estate planning for one who has signed a minerals lease. It is my opinion that if one owns 100 acres or more in the shale plays of eastern Ohio ignoring estate planning will significantly impact the amount of taxes that one ends up paying. There are many issues to be considered. One of the more important is getting a VALUATION of your property before production begins. I personally have done this. An individual that is quite qualified in doing a minerals valuation is Timothy Knoblock (phone: 740-373-9522; email: ). I'd suggest contacting Tim preferably by e-mail to get further detail on this topic.

Al, Link to the article for the rest of us to read?

Here's a good article explaining why the Utica/Marcellus products are selling at a low price.
