With worldwide demand for petroleum and petroleum products projected to increase as the population continues to grow, the time has never been better to invest in oil production wells. If you are not familiar with the ins and outs of how to invest in oil wells, it is in your best interest to learn more about how this unique method of investing benefits both the individual investor and the nation as a whole. Below are several facts about oil well investing that might help you decide if the time is right for you to take part in this unique investment vehicle.
For most investors, the generous tax breaks that each investor receives are among the most attractive aspects of oil well investing. By providing these tax breaks, the federal government promotes individual participation in domestic energy production. Most individuals who invest in oil wells are permitted to deduct the full amount of their investment on their federal tax return either as an immediate deduction or in accordance with the business asset depreciation schedule. These tax breaks are applicable for investors whose wells are put into production as well as those who are involved in drilling projects that are ultimately unsuccessful.
When it comes to making any type of investment, every investor wants to realize a lucrative return on his or her investment as quickly as possible. With a successful oil well project, the investor can start collecting monthly distribution checks within a period of a few months. Distribution checks are based on the quantity of oil produced over the course of a month multiplied the current commodity price of petroleum. These checks will keep coming to the investor’s mailbox every month for as long as the well is producing. Plus, the aforementioned tax benefits do not end with the initial investment; fifteen percent of each monthly distribution check is also realized tax-free.

Tax benefits and financial rewards aside, it is important to many investors that their dollars are put to good use in ways that will benefit America and Americans. If this aspect of investing is important to you, oil well investing with U.S. Emerald Energy is a perfect fit.
