Income Taxes Income Taxes
Interim income taxes are based on an estimated annualized effective tax rate applied to the respective quarterly periods, adjusted for discrete tax items in the period in which they occur. Although the Company believes its tax estimates are reasonable, the Company can make no assurance that the final tax outcome of these matters will not be different from that which it has reflected in its historical income tax provisions and accruals. We will adjust our liability for uncertain tax positions, if any, based on changes in facts and circumstances such as the closing of a tax audit or changes in estimates. Our income tax provision may be impacted to the extent that the final outcome of these tax positions is different than the position taken.
The Company is subject to income taxes in the United States and Australia. Significant judgment is required in evaluating the Company’s tax positions and determining the provision for income taxes. During the ordinary course of business, the Company considers tax positions for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain for the purpose of determining whether a reserve is required, despite the Company’s belief that the tax positions are fully supportable. To date the Company has not established a reserve provision because the Company believes that all tax positions are highly certain.
The following table summarizes our effective tax rate for the periods presented:
Three Months Ended March 31,
2024 2023
Loss before income taxes $ (8,914) $ (10,436)
(Provision for) benefit from income taxes
(19) 883
Effective tax rate 0.2% (8.5)%
For the three months ended March 31, 2024, as compared to the same quarter in the prior year, the Company’s effective tax rate changed due to an increase in the valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets in Australia. When compared to the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21.0%, the lower effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2024 was primarily due to non-deductible permanent differences and a full valuation allowance on the net deferred tax assets in Australia.
