12. Income Tax
The following table presents the provision for income taxes and our effective tax rate for the three-month periods ended December 31, 2021 and 2020:
The effective income tax rate on operations is based upon the estimated income for the year, and adjustments, if any, in the applicable quarterly periods for the potential tax consequences, benefits, resolutions of tax audits or other tax contingencies.
Our effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2021 is lower than the statutory rate primarily due to the effect of the valuation allowance on the net DTA position. Our effective tax rate for the three months ended December 31, 2020 is higher than the statutory tax rate primarily due to statutory changes regarding the Payroll Protection Program (PPP). Other than the deferred tax liability relating to indefinite lived asset, the Company is maintaining a valuation allowance against the remaining net DTA position.
The entire disclosure for income taxes. Disclosures may include net deferred tax liability or asset recognized in an enterprise's statement of financial position, net change during the year in the total valuation allowance, approximate tax effect of each type of temporary difference and carryforward that gives rise to a significant portion of deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets, utilization of a tax carryback, and tax uncertainties information.
