1. The tax herein provided for must be paid to the commissioner and the person paying the tax shall file with the commissioner at the time the tax is required to be paid a statement on forms prescribed by the commissioner. The commissioner may require a purchaser to file the statement or report by electronic data interchange or other electronic media.
2. Any person engaged in the production, within this state, of oil shall on or before the twenty-fifth day of the next succeeding month after production, and any person engaged in the production of gas within this state shall, on or before the fifteenth of the second succeeding month after production, file with the commissioner a statement upon forms prescribed by the commissioner. The commissioner may waive the requirement that a producer file a well production report. A waiver by the commissioner of the requirement to file a well production report does not release the producer from any obligation to remit the tax under this chapter. A waiver does not release the producer from any duty or obligation under section 57-51-07 to maintain production records for inspection by the commissioner.
3. Reports from either the purchaser or producer, as the case may be, are delinquent after the last day fixed for their filing, and every person required to file a report is subject to a penalty of twenty-five dollars per day for each property upon which the person fails or refuses to file the reports. The penalties herein prescribed are for failure to file reports and are in addition to the penalty imposed by section 57-51-10 and likewise constitute a lien against the assets of the person failing or refusing to file the reports. The penalties prescribed under this section must be collected in the same manner as gross production taxes and must be apportioned as other gross production tax penalties; provided, that the commissioner may, for good cause shown, waive any penalties imposed under this section. When royalty is claimed to be exempt from taxation by law, the facts on which the claims of exemption are based and other relevant information must be furnished when requested by the commissioner.
4. The tax commissioner may prescribe alternative methods for signing, subscribing, or verifying a return filed by electronic means, including telecommunications, that shall have the same validity and consequence as the actual signature and written declaration for a paper return.
