Back in 2012 I blogged….https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2012/05/18/arlington-tomorrow-foundation-preparing-for-negative-royalties/ but so far only ONE lien on property…how many more out there?
MINERAL TAX ALERT for TARRANT COUNTY residents……….Be advised that Chesapeake left the Barnett Shale and was sold off to 25% French stakeholder, Total, and they are back adding on to existing drill sites (Cornerstone Church is fracking near their children’s playground that council asked them to move but they did not).…your neighborhood could be next…what to do? Lay down and spread yer legs cause the minerals and their upcoming TAD catch-up tax bills are heading our way as well…..check your mineral tax balance where you pay your property taxes at the courthouse in downtown Arlington cause there are discussions happening right now on Nextdoor Neighbor.com about a lien put on a home for a past due $15 tax bill on the minerals they extracted under her property years ago. In 2014 and 2015 I was told by a courthouse clerk on 7/25/2018 that TAD FAILED to send the tax bills out albeit as small as they were/are….but last month they sent a round of “catch up bills”…..more billings to come we expect. Don’t ignore your bill if it comes from a collection agency attorney office…it is real…and this lady is trying to understand how her first alert of owing this money comes as a late lien…..Here is a cut & Paste from Nextdoor.com
“Has anyone received a letter from an attorney (mine was from the office of Perdue,Brandon,Fielder,Collins & Mott, L.L.P.) ATTORNEYS AT LAW
Titled: NOTICE OF TAX LIEN It states that I owe the Arlington Independent School District $15.67 for 2015 Mineral Interests on my property . So I called the attorney office and asked why I was receiving this letter and why on earth would there be a tax lien on my property for a past due amount of $15.67. I also asked does that mean they could take my property… and she said yes. If anyone has also received a letter like this please let me know. I told the receptionist I thought that this sounds like a land grab to me. From the sound of her voice I thought she sounded embarrassed. I think it might be a good idea that anyone who receives periodic checks for mineral rights might consider checking with this attorneys office or the appraisal district so they can update the tax rolls. Vickie said that they were receiving notices for 2014, 2015 and so on. I would hate to see if maybe someones notice might have been lost in the mail or delivered to the wrong address might hear about it too late. I don’t like the sound of this. I get offers to buy my house almost every day as I’m sure most all of you have also so… I would like to know what is going on. Please express your opinions. I don’t like what I am seeing or hearing”.
