|Income Tax Disclosure [Text Block]||
We recorded income tax expense of $3.4 million and $10.6 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2021 compared with a benefit of $0.3 million and expense of $6.4 million in the prior year comparable periods. Our consolidated effective tax rate was 17.8% and 20.2% for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2021 compared with 58.8% and 23.4% 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 nine months of fiscal 2021 compared with a year ago was due to a reduction in our valuation allowance on certain deferred tax assets.
As of March 31, 2021, we had $2.2 million of unrecognized tax benefits of which $0.3 million are expected to decrease in the next 12 months. If recognized, $2.0 million of unrecognized tax benefits would reduce our income tax expense and the effective tax rate.
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.
