Youngker says that the interpretations are the same and used for all other property owners in the county and state. Failure of the court to uphold the ruling would be a blow to all property owners, Youngker said. Other property owners would have to pick up an additional ad valorem tax load that the oil com- panies should be paying on their property. '~( Ir~~ .... (; ~. ! j.
