FORM ONRR-4292 – GENERAL
INSTRUCTIONS COAL WASHING
ALLOWANCE REPORT
In accordance with 30 CFR §§ 1206.457 and 1206.458, you may deduct from your royalty
payments a portion of the reasonable, actual cost for washing coal mined from Indian lands. You
calculate the allowance on a per ton of clean coal basis, and may not claim an allowance for reject
material on which no royalty is due. You are required to report to the Office of Natural Resources
Revenue (ONRR) on an annual or, if necessary, more frequent basis. For example, under arm’slength washing contracts, you must submit form ONRR-4292 as frequently as necessary to reflect
contract modifications or amendments.
At the end of each reporting period, you must report on page 1 of form ONRR-4292 the actual costs
deducted during the prior reporting period and the estimated washing costs to be deducted during
the current reporting period. The Schedules for form ONRR-4292 will assist you in assembling the
various washing cost items, computing the total costs, calculating the cost per-ton, and computing
the total actual and projected allowance amounts. Report and claim allowances on the form ONRR4430, Production and Royalty Report, in the allowance section of the form.
You may claim as a washing allowance the actual washing costs incurred under arm’s length
contracts. The washing allowance amount incurred under non-arm’s length contracts or no contracts
equals the washing system operating costs plus either depreciation plus a return on the remaining
undepreciated capital investment or a cost equal to the depreciable investment in the washing system
multiplied by the rate of return determined in accordance with 30 CFR § 1206.458(b)(2)(iv)(B).
Determine the washing allowance rate by dividing the total dollar amount by clean tons of coal (as
measured at the coal loadout facility).
No cost normally associated with mining, which would normally be conducted in the absence of
washing - such as crushing, storing, screening, loading, blending, and any related in-mine haulage is allowed as a washing cost.
Page 1 of form ONRR-4292 lists royalty allowance amounts claimed during the prior reporting
period and estimates of the royalty allowance amount for the new reporting period. Use a separate
page 1 for each mine.
Schedule 1 accumulates washing costs and computes the royalty allowance rate and amount for a
washing facility.
Schedule 1A summarizes operating, maintenance, and overhead costs for a non-arm’s length or no
contract washing operation.
Supplemental Schedule 1A details operating, maintenance, and overhead costs that could not be
shown on Schedule 1A because of limited space.
Schedule 1B summarizes depreciation and undepreciated investment capital costs for a non-arm’s
length or no contract washing operation.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM ONRR-4292, PAGE 1
1. Customer Name and Address -- Enter the company name and address used to report royalties
and washing deductions on form ONRR-4430.
2. Customer Code -- Enter the same company code (previously the payor code) as used on form
ONRR-4430.
3. For Customer Use Only -- Enter your internal account identifier that will distinguish this report
for you.
4. Reporting Type -- Enter the report type indicator as follows:
• “1” if this is an initial report for the mine and lease number (complete column 11 only)
• “2” if this is a recurring form reporting the prior and current period data (complete both
columns 10 and 11)
• “3” if this is an amended report to correct previously reported data. An amended report
requires a two-line entry. The first line reverses the original entry using a minus sign (-)
in all sections of columns 10 and 11, and the second line shows the correct entry.
5. Reporting Period – Enter the period covered by the actual cost data for the washing allowance
reported in column 10. If this is your first report for this mine and lease combination, you will
not complete column 10 so the reporting period will be the timeframe covered by the estimated
data reported in column 11.
The reporting period is controlled by the arm’s length/customer owned indicator in column 9.
If you enter a “4” or “5” in column 9:
• Your initial reporting period will begin with the month your were first authorized to
deduct the washing allowance and will end at the end of the calendar year or when the
washing terminates, whichever is earlier.
•

Your subsequent reporting periods will begin the first day of the calendar year and end
the last day of the calendar year or when the washing terminates, whichever is earlier.

If you enter a “6” in column 9:
• Your initial reporting period will begin with the month you were first authorized to
deduct the washing allowance and will end at the end of the calendar year or when the
contract or rate terminates, is modified or amended, whichever is earlier.
•

Your subsequent reporting periods will begin the first day after the period covered by
the previous form ONRR-4292 and end the last day of the calendar year or when the
contract or rate terminates, is modified or amended, whichever is earlier.

6. Lease Number -- Enter the lease number as reported on the form ONRR-4430.
7. Product -- Enter the same product as reported on the form ONRR-4430.
8. Mine Name -- Enter the mine name associated with this lease for this washing allowance.

9. Arm’s Length/Customer-Owned Indicator – Complete the column as follows:
• “4” if you incur 100% of the washing costs under non-arm’s length conditions
• “5” if washing costs were a combination of arm’s length and non-arm’s length
conditions
• “6” if you incur 100% of the washing costs under arm’s length conditions
10. Prior Period Actual Data – Use this column to report actual data for the reporting period. If
this is an initial report for start-up, do not complete this column; go to column 11.
Enter in column 10a the sum of the royalty quantity washed and sold during the reporting period
(Schedule 1, line 9) plus the royalty quantity sold during the reporting period but washed during
the prior reporting period (tons used in calculation of Schedule 1, line 11).
Enter in column 10b the washing allowance rate determined by dividing the royalty allowance
amount (column 10c) by the royalty quantity (column 10a). Calculate the allowance rate to six
decimal places.
Enter in column 10c the royalty allowance amount shown on Schedule 1, line 12.
11. Current Period Estimated Data – Use column 11 to report estimated data for the current
reporting period.
The washing tonnage or allowance rate may be the same as the actual tonnage or rate reported
in column 10. If so, enter the corresponding values from columns 10a, 10b, and 10c into
columns 11a, 11b, and 11c. If you believe the tonnage or the rate for the new reporting period
will be different from the prior reporting period, then adjust the estimates accordingly. Report
the allowance rate to six decimal places. Please take care to ensure the estimates are as accurate
as possible.
If you incur washing costs solely under arm’s length conditions, compute estimates for a
washing facility start-up as follows:
• Enter in column 11a the estimated clean coal tonnage from washing operations during
the new reporting period.
• Enter in column 11b the allowance rate per ton as specified in the arm’s length contract
and as shown on Schedule 1, line 6.
• If the arm’s length contract rate is on a raw coal (input tonnage) basis, convert that rate
to a cost per clean ton basis. Report the allowance rate to six decimal places.
• Enter in column 11c the estimated royalty allowance amount computed by multiplying
column 11a by column 11b.
If you incur washing costs under non-arm’s length conditions or a combination of both arm’s
length or non-arm’s length conditions:
• Use Schedules 1, 1A, and 1B to estimate the allowance rate and amount.
• Enter in column 11a the estimated royalty tons to be washed, expressed in terms of clean
coal tonnage.
• Enter in column 11b the estimate allowance rate per ton from Schedule 1, line 6.
• Enter in column 11c the estimated royalty allowance amount from Schedule 1, line 10.

12. Page Total – Enter page totals for columns 10a, 10c, 11a, and 11c.
13. Report Total – If you submit more than one page 1 of form ONRR-4292, sum the lines 12
of each page and enter the total on line 13 of the last page 1 of the report packet.
Complete the bottom portion of the form with your dated name, signature, and the name and phone
number of the person completing the form. Check the appropriate box indicating if you consider

ALLOWABLE AND NONALLOWABLE
OPERATING, MAINTENANCE, AND CAPITAL COSTS
Allowable Capital Costs – Allowable capital costs are generally those costs for depreciable fixed
assets (including costs of delivery and installation of capital equipment) which are an integral part
of the wash plant.
Nonallowable Capital Costs – Nonallowable capital costs include costs incidental to marketing
(e.g., storage and treatment). Also, schools, hospitals, roads, sewer and other capital improvements
or equipment not an integral part of the transportation facility are not allowable capital costs. The
capital cost associated with the preparation of an environmental impact statement is not allowable.
However, capital costs for environmental equipment that are an integral part of the transportation
facility are allowable.
Allowable Operating Costs – Allowable operating and maintenance costs are those nondepreciable
costs that are directly attributable to the operation and maintenance of a wash plant. These
expenditures include:
• Salaries and wages paid to employees and supervisors while engaged in the operation
and maintenance of equipment and facilities
• Fuel and utility costs directly related to washing lease products
• Repairs, labor, materials, and supplies directly related to equipment and facilities
• Insurance and ad valorem property taxes (Federal and State income taxes are not
allowable deductions)
• Arm’s-length rental, leasing, or contract service costs for equipment, facilities, on-site
location or maintenance of equipment and facilities
• General administrative overhead costs (headquarters, personnel, telephone service,
payroll taxes, employee benefits, vehicle expenses, office supplies, etc.). The total of
these costs is limited to those reasonable expenditures directly attributable and allocable
to the operation and maintenance of the wash plant.
Nonallowable Operating Costs – Nonallowable operating costs include:
• Costs incidental to marketing, and other operating costs associated with nonallowable
capital expenditures which are not directly allocable or attributable to the washing of
lease products.
• Federal and State income taxes, production taxes, royalty payments, or fees such as State
severance taxes
• Costs for services that you are obligated to perform at no cost to the lessor.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORM ONRR-4292, SCHEDULE 1B
Use Schedule 1B to summarize actual or estimated washing facility depreciation and undepreciated
capital investment for computing return on investment for each non-arm’s length or no-contract
washing facility. These costs are capital equipment that is an integral part of the wash plant. You
must complete a separate Schedule 1B for each washing facility.
Complete the customer identification block (see Schedule 1A instructions).
Complete a line for each facility capital expenditure item as follows:
1. Expenditure Item -- Identify the capital expenditure item. List all major equipment exceeding
$50,000 in initialized capitalized value individually.
2. Initial Capital Investment and Date Placed in Service – Enter the initial capital expenditure
amount and the date the expenditure was placed in service.
3. Salvage Value – Enter a reasonable salvage value.
4. Depreciable Life/Years of Depreciation Taken to Date -- Enter the depreciable life of the
expenditure and the number of years of depreciation taken to date.
5. Beginning-of-Year Undepreciated Capital Investment – Enter the undepreciated capital
investment at beginning-of-year. In computing this value, deduct salvage from the initial
capital investment.
6. Depreciation – Enter the amount of depreciation to be taken for the year. In computing
depreciation, you may elect to use either a straight-line depreciation method or a unit of
production method based on the life of the equipment. Once you make an election, you may not
alternate methods without ONRR approval. Do not depreciate equipment below a reasonable
salvage value.
7. End-of-Year Undepreciated Capital Investment – Enter the undepreciated capital investment at
end-of-year. Compute this by subtracting depreciation from the beginning-of-year
undepreciated capital investment. Also use this amount as the next year’s beginning-of-year
undepreciated capital investment.
8. Totals – Sum columns 5 and 6 and enter on Schedule 1, Part A, columns g and e, or Part B,
columns g and e, accordingly.
