Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     10-39A-4.   Operator to be designated to file returns and pay tax--Tax withheld from owner--Designated operator. Each owner of interests in energy minerals produced from a single well or mine shall designate an operator to file all required returns and to pay the tax due under this chapter. The tax, subject to any provisions to the contrary in any written contract, lease, or other form of agreement, shall be withheld from distributions that would otherwise be made to each owner by the operator for payment to the state. If any owner of interests in energy minerals produced from a single well or mine fails to designate such an operator, then the person designated as operator by the owner of the working interest in the well or mine, or, if no such person has been designated, then the person holding the greatest portion of the working interest in such well or mine, is the designated operator for purposes of this section.
