Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]  




Generally, accounting standards require companies to provide for income taxes each quarter based on their estimate of the effective tax rate for the full year. The authoritative guidance for accounting for income taxes allows use of the discrete method when it provides a better estimate of income tax expense. Due to the Company’s valuation allowance position, it is the Company’s position that the discrete method provides a more accurate estimate of income tax expense and therefore income tax expense for the current quarter has been presented using the discrete method. As the year progresses, the Company refines its estimate based on the facts and circumstances by each tax jurisdiction. The following table summarizes income tax expense on loss from continuing operations and the effective tax rate for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:


    2022     2021     2022     2021  
    Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended  
    June 30     June 30  
    2022     2021     2022     2021  
    (unaudited)     (unaudited)  
Provision for income tax   $ 16     $ 16     $ 34     $ 31  
Effective income tax rate     (0.4 )%     (0.5 )%     (0.6 )%     (0.4 )%


Income tax expense for both the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 was primarily due to minimum state and local taxes.
