4 CPE Credits

Increased production from fracking in Texas and other states has both generated substantial refund opportunities and prompted Texas to escalate Oilfield Service company audits. Recent rulings affecting this industry have contributed to these issues as well.

This 4-hour course is designed to educate professionals on the Texas sales tax issues prominent in the Oilfield Services industry. By completing this course you will gain a working knowledge of Texas’ sales tax rules as they apply to various phases of the Oilfield Services process from seismic analysis, the acquisition and preparation of drilling sites, drilling and completing the well and those related to a producing oil field. Learn how to minimize the likelihood of adverse tax assessments and discover refund opportunities. Discuss audit concerns and strategies and your options in contesting any adverse assessments.
