10. Income taxes
The provision for income taxes consists of the following:
A reconciliation of the federal statutory rate to the Company’s effective tax rate is as follows:
At February 3, 2018, the Company recorded a provisional tax expense related to the impacts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Tax Reform). The SEC issued guidance on December 22, 2017 under Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 118 (“SAB 118”) which allowed recording a provisional tax expense using a measurement period, not to exceed more than one year from the enactment date. The Company’s accounting for the impacts of the Tax Reform is complete and the Company has not recorded any material adjustments to the provisional amounts under SAB 118.
Significant components of the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities are as follows:
At February 2, 2019, the Company had $237 of credit carryforwards for state income tax purposes that expire between 2023 and 2028. The Company also had $1,114 of federal and $1,136 of state net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards that expire by 2035 and $368 of federal and $345 of state NOL carryforwards that do not expire.
The Company accounts for uncertainty in income taxes in accordance with the ASC 740-10 rules for income taxes. The reserve for uncertain tax positions was $3,844 and $3,565 at February 2, 2019 and February 3, 2018, respectively. The balance is the Company’s best estimate of the potential liability for uncertain tax positions. A reconciliation of the Company’s unrecognized tax benefits, excluding interest and penalties, is as follows:
The Company acknowledges that the amount of unrecognized tax benefits may change in the next twelve months. However, it does not expect the change to have a significant impact on its consolidated financial statements. Income tax-related interest and penalties were insignificant for fiscal 2018 and 2017.
The Company files tax returns in the U.S. federal and state jurisdictions. The Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal examinations by the Internal Revenue Service for years before 2017 and is no longer subject to examinations by state authorities before 2014.
