We evaluate our deferred taxes to determine if the “more likely than not” standard of evidence has not been met thereby supporting the need for a valuation allowance. The evaluation of the amount of net deferred tax assets expected to be realized necessarily involves forecasting the amount of taxable income that will be generated in future years. We have forecasted future results using estimates management believes to be reasonable. Our forecasts are based on our best estimate of expected trends resulting from certain leading economic indicators. The realization of deferred income tax assets is dependent on future events. Actual results inevitably will vary from management's forecasts which may be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, possibly resulting in a sustained economic downturn, or significantly extended economic recovery. Such variances could result in adjustments to the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets in future periods, and such adjustments could be material to the financial statements. A valuation allowance must be established for deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that assets will not be realized.
At June 30, 2021, a valuation allowance of $0.6 million was in place against the retail segment's Canadian tax assets. The valuation allowance previously recorded of $2.5 million against the U.S. state and local deferred tax assets was removed during fiscal 2021 as it was now considered more likely than not to be realized based on the performance and related positive earnings generated by the retail segment’s U.S. operations over the past 36 months. At June 30, 2020, a valuation allowance of $3.2 million was in place against the retail segment’s U.S. state and local and Canadian foreign tax assets. With the liquidation of the Belgian subsidiary during fiscal 2020, the previously recorded valuation allowance of $2.6 million was removed in fiscal 2020. This reduction was partially offset by a $2.5 million valuation allowance recorded during fiscal 2020 on our U.S. retail segment’s state and local deferred tax assets.
The deferred tax assets at June 30, 2021 associated with net operating loss carryforwards and the related expiration dates are as follows (in thousands):
Uncertain Tax Positions
We recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters as a component of income tax expense. If the $2.0 million of unrecognized tax benefits and related interest and penalties as of June 30, 2021 were recognized, approximately $1.6 million would be recorded as a benefit to income tax expense.
A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits including related interest and penalties is as follows (in thousands):
It is reasonably possible that various issues relating to approximately $0.4 million of the total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2021 will be resolved within the next twelve months as exams are completed or statutes expire. If recognized, approximately $0.4 million of unrecognized tax benefits would reduce our income tax expense in the period realized.
The Company conducts business globally and, as a result, the Company or one or more of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the United States, various state, and foreign jurisdictions.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company and certain subsidiaries are currently under audit fromthrough 2019 in the United States. While the amount of uncertain tax benefits with respect to the entities and years under audit may change within the next twelve months, it is not anticipated that any of the changes will be significant.
