Q: Frequent Questions Regarding Revenue Checks:

D. If the check has not been cashed, we will reissue the check on our next revenue check write.
3. What will be the amount of my next check?
For security reasons, we no longer provide check detail over the phone before you receive your check.
4. What is Minimum Pay?
Many states have passed laws that allow producers to accumulate royalty obligations up to specified amounts before making payment to owners. Robertson Energy, LLC will accumulate funds until they reach $100 before a check is issued. However, if you wish to receive a check more frequently, then the limit can be set to $25 for payments. This must be requested in writing to our office.
5. What is Annual Pay?
Annually, Robertson Energy, LLC will issue funds to owners that have not reached the accumulated pay level of $100. If you have less than $100 in your account, a check for that amount will be issued to you each year.
6. What are “Stale Dated” checks?
Our revenue checks are valid for 90 days after the date of issue. If you do not deposit your check within the 90 days the check is considered stale dated and the bank will not honor the check. Please return the check to our office ATTN: Owner Relations with a letter including your name, owner/payee number and daytime phone number. We will take the necessary steps to include the stale dated amount on your next revenue check.
7. Will I receive a 1099 every year?
Royalty owners who receive $10.00 or more and working interest owners who receive $600.00 or more in a calendar year will receive a 1099 by January 31st of the following year. The income reported to the IRS is your gross income before taxes or other deductions. The 1099 will also list any state or US withholding amounts deducted from your revenue checks.
Q: What do I do when someone dies?
Oil and gas interests are considered real property and as such are governed by the law of the state in which the land is located. You should notify us in writing of the interest owner’s death and include a copy of the death certificate and a copy of the will. We will contact you with specific instructions pertaining to your situation.
Q: How do I report a change of ownership other than death?
All requests for change in ownership must be submitted in writing, accompanied by a recorded conveyance document and sent to our office listed above. Please include the following information:
• Name of current owner (and owner number if known)
