Income Taxes


The Company's process for determining the provision for income taxes involves using an estimated annual effective tax rate which is based on expected annual income and statutory tax rates across the various jurisdictions in which we operate. We recorded a provision for income tax expense of $5.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 compared with $10.1 million in the prior year comparable period. Our consolidated effective tax rate was 25.6% for the three months ended September 30, 2023 compared with 25.3% in the year ago first quarter. Our effective tax rate varies from the 21% federal statutory rate primarily due to state taxes.


We recognize interest and penalties related to income tax matters as a component of income tax expense. As of September 30, 2023, we had $3.2 million of unrecognized tax benefits compared with $3.0 million as of June 30, 2023. It is reasonably possible that various issues relating to $0.4 million of the total gross unrecognized tax benefits as of September 30, 2023 will be resolved within the next 12 months as exams are completed or statutes expire. If recognized, $0.3 million of unrecognized tax benefits would reduce our income tax expense in the period realized.
