The Company’s quarterly tax provision is based upon an estimated annual effective tax rate. The Company’s provision for income taxes has not been historically significant to the business as the Company has incurred U.S. operating losses to date. The provision for income taxes consists primarily of state taxes and foreign taxes in jurisdictions in which the Company conducts business.
The Company’s provision for income taxes was $0.3 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $0.5 million and $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, with an effective tax rate of (2.1)% and (2.9)% for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and an effective tax rate of (1.0)% and (1.7)% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory tax rate primarily due to the valuation allowance on the Company’s U.S. deferred tax assets.
The Company maintains a full valuation allowance against its U.S. deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2022. It regularly assesses the need for a valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. In making that assessment, the Company considers both positive and negative evidence related to the likelihood of realization of the deferred tax assets to determine, based on the weight of available evidence, whether it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Due to cumulative losses over recent years and based on all available evidence, the Company has determined that it is more likely than not that its U.S. deferred tax assets will not be realized as of September 30, 2022.
The Company has elected to record taxes associated with its Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income as period costs if and when incurred.
On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (the Inflation Act) into law. The Inflation Act contains certain tax measures, including a corporate alternative minimum tax of 15% on some large corporations and an excise tax of 1% on corporate stock buy-backs. The Company does not expect the new law to have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
