Do I need to claim $6 for oil royalties that I received? It's very confusing the questions ask about rental property, etc. I don't own property just oil rights?

You are required to report it; however, if you don't include it on your tax return, the IRS systems will add it to what you file, and if it has any impact on your tax owed they will send you a letter.  Given that it's only $6, that probably won't happen, and if it does it will only be $1 - $3.

I don’t have a problem claiming it. But I get confused because then it asks questions about it being rental property, etc. And I don’t own the property. So don’t know how to answer the questions. It then makes me do extra schedules which in turn raises the cost of using turbo tax

Rentals and royalties are both entered on Schedule E, but have different places in the program to enter your information. The income should be in Box 2 of your 1099-MIsc.
