Upon receipt of such a request, that officer may revoke the permit or registration.
Except as provided in section 5749.03 of the Revised Code, before severing a natural resource each severer shall file an application with the commissioner on a form prescribed by the commissioner to establish a severance tax account. The application may require the severer to disclose any information the commissioner considers necessary to establish that account.
