Why does the time period change from 10 to 12 years? In the examples above, well production is shown over a ten-year period, and tax revenues are shown over a twelve-year period. The difference accounts for the time lag between when production occurs, and when states receive tax revenue for that specific production period. In some states, property taxes are paid based on production that occurred up to two years earlier.
