|Income Taxes||Income Taxes
We are subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income tax in multiple state and local jurisdictions. We have concluded all U.S. federal income tax matters as well as material state and local tax matters for years through 2015.
We file consolidated federal income tax returns that include all of our subsidiaries. The components of the provision for income taxes from continuing operations for the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018 are as follows (in thousands):
The differences between the amount of tax computed at the federal statutory rate of 21% in 2020, 2019 and 2018, and the provision for income taxes from continuing operations for the years ended December 31, 2020, 2019 and 2018 are as follows (in thousands):
Certain amounts from the prior years have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
The tax effect of temporary differences representing deferred tax assets and liabilities as of December 31, 2020 and 2019 are as follows (in thousands):
(a) A valuation allowance was provided against US capital loss in connection with the stock sale of Prime Turbines, certain state tax credit and foreign tax loss deferred tax assets arising from carryforwards of unused tax benefits.
(b) Certain amounts from prior year have been reclassified to conform with current year presentation.
We file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and in various state and foreign jurisdictions. With few exceptions, the statute of limitations for these jurisdictions is no longer open for audit or examinations for the years before 2016.
At December 31, 2020, we have various tax losses and tax credits that may be applied against future taxable income. The majority of such tax attributes will expire in 2026 through 2030; however, some may be carried forward indefinitely.In March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was enacted. The CARES Act includes certain changes to U.S. tax law, which we do not believe had a significant impact on our 2020 effective tax rate.
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.
