TOPIC: COAL SEVERANCE TAX
INQUIRY: Identify all states which impose a coal severance tax.
SEARCH RESULTS: A COALEX search was conducted to identify those having a coal severance tax program. The COALEX file contains only those state regulations which pertain to mining regulatory programs, other state laws may also impose a tax on the severance of coal. These are located in the Taxation and Revenue sections of their statutes and are not part of the COALEX file.
Note: The attached documentation regarding Montana and Kentucky was located outside the COALEX file.
