If you received a 1099-MISC for royalty income, enter it under the Rental and Royalty section, and not in the Other Common income section. This will properly link the 1099-MISC with the schedule E. Enter in the Royalty Income section on the summary page. Delete the form if you entered it elsewhere.
Note: Be certain to deduct any production taxes, depletion (15%) and any other expenses you have. You will only want to pay taxes on the net amount you received, not the 1099-MISC gross. Any additional depletion that your state may allow (OK does) will be an adjustment under your state taxes.
