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 $25,096 for the 13 weeks ended October 31, 2020 represents an effective tax rate of 25.1%, compared to $38,933 of tax expense representing an effective tax rate of 23.1% for the 13 weeks ended November 2, 2019. The higher effective tax rate is primarily due to less investment tax credits received.
Income tax expense of $2,935 for the 39 weeks ended October 31, 2020 represents an effective tax rate of 40.3%, compared to $134,729 of tax expense representing an effective tax rate of 21.8% for the 39 weeks ended November 2, 2019. The higher effective tax rate is primarily due to a near break-even pre-tax operating income in fiscal 2020, less investment tax credits received, and tax expense from the income tax accounting for share-based compensation compared to a tax benefit in fiscal 2019.
