Oil and Gas Severance Tax Registration and Filing
The Oil and Gas Bureau consists of auditors and collection staff who audit and ensure compliance with the severance tax (oil and natural gas tax) programs. In addition, audits are conducted under the federal royalty program via a contract with the Mineral Management Services (MMS) of the Department of Interior to ensure that the correct amount of federal royalties is paid, a portion of which are paid to New Mexico by MMS.
