Income Taxes


We recorded income tax expense of $7.9 million and $24.4 million, respectively, for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2022 compared with $3.4 million and $10.6 million in the prior year comparable periods. Our consolidated effective tax rate was 24.2% and 25.4% for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2022 compared with 17.8% and 20.2% in the prior year periods. Our effective tax rate varies from the 21% federal statutory rate primarily due to state taxes. The increase in the effective tax rate compared with the prior year was primarily due to a reduction in our valuation allowance on retail state and local deferred tax assets in the prior year.


We recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters as a component of income tax expense. As of March 31, 2022, we had $2.6 million of unrecognized tax benefits compared with $2.0 million as of June 30, 2021. It is reasonably possible that various issues relating to approximately $0.4 million of the total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2022 will be resolved within the next 12 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.
