|Income Tax Disclosure [Text Block]||
We recorded income tax expense of $5.3 million and $7.2 million, respectively, for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 compared with $2.2 million and $6.7 million in the prior year comparable periods. Our consolidated effective tax rate was 23.9% and 21.5% for the three and six months ended December 31, 2020 compared with 23.5% and 24.1% in the prior year comparable periods. Our effective tax rate varies from the 21% federal statutory rate due to state taxes and other nonrecurring events that may not be predictable. The decrease in the effective tax rate during the first half of fiscal 2021 compared with a year ago was due to a $0.9 million reduction in our valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.
As of December 31, 2020, we had $2.2 million of unrecognized tax benefits, of which $2.0 million would reduce our income tax expense and the effective tax rate, if recognized. As of December 31, 2020, we had $0.5 million of unrecognized tax benefits that are expected to decrease in the next 12 months.
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.
