11. Income Tax
The following table presents the provision for income taxes and our effective tax rate for the three and six-month periods ended March 31, 2023 and 2022:
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 and six-month periods ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, is lower than the statutory tax rate primarily due to the effect of the valuation allowance on the net deferred tax asset (“DTA”) position. Other than the deferred tax liability relating to indefinite lived assets, 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.
