As of December 31, 2022, the Company had U.S. federal and state net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $22,168,000, which have an indefinite carryforward.
On August 16, 2022, the president signed the Inflation Reduction Act (“IRA”) into law. The IRA enacted a 15% corporate minimum tax effective in 2024, a 1% tax on share repurchases after December 31, 2022, and created and extended certain tax-related energy incentives. The Company does not expect the tax-related provisions of the IRA to have a material effect on its financial results.
As of June 30, 2023, the Company has not generated sufficient positive evidence for future earnings to support a position that it will be able to realize its net deferred tax asset. The Company has significant negative evidence to overcome in the form of cumulative pre-tax losses from continuing operations since its formation, as well as projected losses for the current year. Therefore, it will continue to maintain a full valuation allowance on its U.S. federal and state net deferred tax asset. The change in the valuation allowance offset the income tax benefit related to the net operating loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022. The Company does not have any material unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2023.
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.
