Independent Fiscal Office Projects Up To $24.3 Million Growth In Act 13 Drilling Impact Fee Revenue Collected In 2023; Lowest Ever Effective Tax Rate Of 0.6%

On June 21, the
Independent Fiscal Office updated its Act 13 Drilling Impact Fee revenue report saying per well fees collected next year will increase by up to $24.3 million to a new high of $258.7 million due to natural gas price spikes.

At the same time, the effective tax rate on natural gas drillers will be the lowest on record-- 0.6 percent-- down from 1.3 percent this year and a high of 6.4 percent in 2015.

The Act 13 fee is assessed per well based on a formula in law that sets the fee based on the price of natural gas.  It is not based on natural gas production like a severance tax.
