(11) Income Taxes
Income tax expense (benefit) attributable to income from operations consists of the following for the fiscal years ended June 30 (in thousands):
The following is a reconciliation of expected income tax expense (benefit) (computed by applying the federal statutory income tax rate to income before taxes) to actual income tax expense (benefit) (in thousands):
The deferred income tax asset and liability balances at June 30 (in thousands) include:
The deferred tax balances are classified in the Consolidated Balance Sheets as follows at June 30 (in thousands):
Note: Current deferred tax assets and liabilities and non-current deferred tax assets and liabilities have been presented net in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
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. A valuation allowance must be established for deferred tax assets when it is less than 50% likely that assets will be realized. At June 30 of 2015, 2014 and 2013, such an allowance was in place against the Belgian foreign tax assets in our retail segment, and at June 30, 2015 this valuation allowance was approximately $1.8 million. At June 30, 2013, a valuation allowance was also in place against certain U.S. retail segment assets. During fiscal 2014, we determined these assets would likely be realized due to a return to profitability that remains through fiscal 2015. Accordingly, during fiscal 2014, we released all of the U.S. retail segment valuation allowance remaining against deferred tax assets, recording a tax benefit of $2 million at that time.
The Company’s deferred income tax assets at June 30, 2015 with respect to the net operating losses expire as follows (in thousands):
Deferred U.S. federal income taxes are not provided for unremitted foreign earnings of our foreign subsidiaries because we expect those earnings will be permanently reinvested.
Uncertain Tax Positions
We recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters as a component of income tax expense. If the $3.1 million of unrecognized tax benefits and related interest and penalties as of June 30, 2015 were recognized, approximately $2.0 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 as of June 30, 2015 and 2014 is as follows (in thousands):
It is reasonably possible that various issues relating to approximately $1.2 million of the total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of June 30, 2015 will be resolved within the next twelve months as exams are completed or statutes expire. If recognized, approximately $0.8 million of unrecognized tax benefits would reduce our tax expense in the period realized. However, actual results could differ from those currently anticipated.
The Company conducts business globally and, as a result, the Company or one or more of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S., various state, and foreign jurisdictions. In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to examination by the taxing authorities in such major jurisdictions as the U.S. Canada, Mexico, Belgium and Honduras. As of June 30, 2015, the Company and certain subsidiaries are currently under audit from 2007 through 2013 in the U.S. 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.
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.
