The PIOGA Tax Committee is pleased to partner again with Arnett Carbis Toothman (ACT), to host a special oil and gas tax and accounting seminar.

What will be covered in the seminar?

With the advent of Tax Reform passing in December 2017, it is more important than ever to be familiar with the special Oil and Gas tax provisions.  To ensure that our members can take full advantage of these new tax benefits available, Arnett Carbis Toothman will present their updated annual Oil and Gas Tax Seminar November 21, 2019.  In addition to providing in depth coverage of oil and gas tax concepts, the seminar will cover Federal and State tax updates and tax planning ideas and opportunities to help oil and gas investors, operators, royalty owners, service companies and professionals maximize tax and economic benefits.

This year’s presentation will include an update on Tax Reform and updates on not only various federal, state and local taxes, but will approach each area to explain how oil and gas investors, operators, royalty owners, service companies and professionals should maximize tax and economic benefits. Planning for current and future opportunities and challenges will be emphasized. ACT presenters will utilize their years of experience in the oil and gas industry to explain key tax benefits such as the Marginal Well Credit as well as standard tax issues that everyone in the oil and gas industry should be aware of and plan for.

Each participant will receive a detailed outline and course materials and an extensive resource section with copies of industry definitions, geological data, and data from federal, state and local tax authorities.  This interactive seminar will provide ample opportunity to for attendees to network, offer your insights about oil and gas and ask questions.

Please plan to attend this seminar!  The topics will be very beneficial, timely and exciting for participants regardless of their experience in the oil and gas industry.

Who should attend?

Accountants, attorneys, bankers, insurance agents, royalty owners and investors will get value out of this seminar.
