English term or phrase: severance tax
Definition from VentureLine:
Severance tax is a tax levied on production of natural resources taken from land or water bottoms within the territorial boundaries of a state.

Example sentence(s):
  • States often favor severance taxes over alternative sources of government revenue because much of the severance tax burden is transferred out of the state. ‘Exporting’ the tax burden is achieved, for example, if a relatively small portion of the oil pumped from an oil-abundant state is used in that state or if out-of-state companies own oil production. The University of Utah
  • A severance tax can provide local jurisdictions with additional revenues to finance economic development, yet the imposition of a tax may create coal industry employment losses. ScientificCommons
  • The change in severance tax cannot, of course, take place in isolation. It should be carried out in conjunction with the other elements of the tax system, i.e. export duties and excise taxes. OIL OF RUSSIA

ressursskatt
Definition:
For eksempel er retten til å fiske er forbeholdt et fåtall fiskere med lukrative kvoter. De utnytter med andre ord en ressurs som tilhører fellesskapet. Fordi det er store fortjenestemuligheter på ressursen, er oppfatningen at det må betales noe ekstra tilbake til samfunnet, en såkalt ressursskatt. Det gjøres både i olje- og vannkraftsektoren.

Definition from DN:
For eksempel er retten til å fiske er forbeholdt et fåtall fiskere med lukrative kvoter. De utnytter med andre ord en ressurs som tilhører fellesskapet. Fordi det er store fortjenestemuligheter på ressursen, er oppfatningen at det må betales noe ekstra tilbake til samfunnet, en såkalt ressursskatt. Det gjøres både i olje- og vannkraftsektoren.

Example sentence(s):
  • Videre har Sp sørget for at det ikke blir innført en ekstra skatt på fiskerinæringen i form av ressursskatt på fisk. - Senterpartiet  
  • Miljørelaterte skatter deles inn i fire hovedgrupper: Energi-, transport-, forurensnings- og ressursskatter. - SSB  

Explanation:
NB: Må ikke forveksles med den såkalte "naturressursskatten", som er en skatt som kun pålegges kraftverkene!

Votes in favor of/against selecting this as the best translation of the term asked
Yes  Hege Jakobsen Lepri: jeg tror, utfra hvordan "severance tax" blir brukt her i Canada at jeg ville lagt til både forurensningsskatt og såkalt arealskatt (som gjelder fiskeoppdrett spesielt), som mulige oversettelser av det engelske begrepet
