13. Income Taxes


The Company’s provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 differs from the amounts computed by multiplying the federal statutory rate by income before taxes primary due to a reduction in the valuation allowance and the use of a tax credit carryforward.  The Company is subject to an ownership change pursuant to IRC Section 382 which occurred in February 2017 which significantly limits its ability to further use its net operating loss carryforwards against its 2017 taxable income.  Due to ongoing losses, the Company did not record a provision for income taxes for any period in 2016.  

Accounting standards provide for the recognition of deferred tax assets if realization of such assets is more likely than not. Based upon the weight of available evidence, which includes the Company’s historical operating performance and carry-back potential, the Company has determined that its total deferred tax assets should be fully offset by a valuation allowance as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.
