New Tax Legislation
On December 22, 2017, the President of the United States (“U.S.”) signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act tax reform legislation. This legislation makes significant change in U.S tax law including a reduction in the corporate tax rates, changes to net operating loss carryforwards and carrybacks, and a repeal of the corporate alternative minimum tax. The legislation reduced the highest U.S corporate tax rate from the current rate of 35% to 21%, effective January 1, 2018. As a result of the enacted law, the Company was required to revalue deferred tax assets and liabilities at the enacted rate. This revaluation resulted in an additional benefit of $13,420 included in income tax expense and corresponding reduction in the net deferred tax liabilities at December 31, 2107. The other provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act did not have a material impact on the 2017 financial statements.
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.
