Note 8. Income Taxes

Income tax expense for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was a benefit of $0.3 million. Our effective income tax rates were 1.09% and zero for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Our effective tax rate differed from the federal statutory rate of 21% due to our valuation allowance against substantially all of our net deferred tax assets.

In assessing the realizability of deferred income tax assets, we consider whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred income tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred income tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods at which time those temporary differences become deductible.

In making valuation allowance determinations, we consider all available evidence, positive and negative, affecting specific deferred tax assets, including the scheduled reversal of deferred income tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, the length of carry-back and carry-forward periods, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. At March 31, 2022 we continued to maintain a partial valuation allowance against our net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty surrounding realization of such assets.
