|INCOME TAXES||INCOME TAXES
The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $0.3 million and income tax expense of $1.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, and the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $4.8 million and an income tax expense of $5.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company has historically calculated the income tax provision or benefit for income taxes during interim reporting periods by applying an estimate of the annual effective tax rate for the full fiscal year to “ordinary” income or loss (pre-tax income or loss excluding unusual or infrequently occurring discrete items) for the reporting period. For the period ended September 30, 2021, the Company determined that small changes in estimated "ordinary” income would result in significant changes in the estimated annual effective tax rate, and therefore, the Company used a discrete effective tax rate method to calculate the income tax provision or benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
The Company has analyzed filing positions in all the federal, state, and foreign jurisdictions where it is required to file income tax returns and for all open tax years. The Company believes that an adequate provision has been made for any adjustments that may result from tax examinations. Although timing of the resolution and/or closure of audits is highly uncertain, the Company does not believe it is reasonably possible that its unrecognized tax benefits would materially change in the next 12 months. The Company’s policy for recording interest and penalties associated with audits and unrecognized tax benefits is to record such items as a component of income tax expense.
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.
