The tax effects of the primary “temporary differences” between values recorded for assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and values utilized for measurement in accordance with tax laws giving rise to our deferred tax assets are as follows (in thousands):


    Year Ended December 31,

We recognize tax assets and liabilities for the future tax consequences related to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and for net operating loss carryforwards. Management evaluated the deferred tax assets for recoverability using a consistent approach that considers the relative impact of negative and positive evidence, including historical profitability and projections of future reversals of temporary differences and future taxable income. We are required to establish a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets if management determines, based on available evidence at the time the determination is made, that it is not more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized.


A valuation allowance for all of our net deferred tax assets has been provided as we are unable to determine, at this time, that the generation of future taxable income against which the net operating losses (“NOL”) carryforwards could be used is more likely than not. As a result of ongoing losses from continuing operations the Company has concluded that it is more likely than not that it will not realize all of its deferred tax assets relating to federal and state filing jurisdictions. As of December 31, 2019, there is a valuation allowance of $4.7 million. As of December 31, 2019, the Company has state NOL carryforwards of $1.1 million, which begin to expire in 2024 and federal NOL carryforwards of $3.5 million. The amount of the federal NOL generated prior to the 2017 legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“TCJA”) of $2.6 million may be carried forward for 20 years and begins to expire in 2032. The remaining amount of $0.9 million federal NOL generated in years 2018 and 2019 may be carried forward indefinitely and its utilization is limited to 80% of taxable income.


We file a consolidated federal income tax return and separate company state returns as well as combined state returns where applicable.
