10.Income taxes

Income tax expense reflects the federal statutory tax rate and the weighted average state statutory tax rate for the states in which the Company operates stores. Income tax expense of $102,367 for the 13 weeks ended April 29, 2023 represents an effective tax rate of 22.8%, compared to $105,912 of income tax expense representing an effective tax rate of 24.2% for the 13 weeks ended April 30, 2022. The lower effective tax rate is primarily due to benefits from income tax accounting for stock-based compensation.

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 was enacted into law, which, among other things, introduced a 15% corporate alternative minimum tax on book income of certain large corporations and created a 1% excise tax on net share repurchases. The corporate alternative minimum tax will be effective in fiscal 2024 and is not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements. The excise tax applies to share repurchases made after December 31, 2022.
