9. INCOME TAXES
The provision for income taxes for the three months ended March 28, 2020 and March 30, 2019, was 22.3% and 22.1% of pretax income, respectively, after adjusting for the impact of the goodwill impairment charge.
At March 28, 2020, the Company had an unrecognized tax benefit of $8,491 including accrued interest. If recognized, the unrecognized tax benefit would have a favorable effect on the effective tax rate in future periods. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. Interest accrued as of March 28, 2020 is not considered material to the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
The Company files United States (“U.S.”) federal income tax returns as well as income tax returns in various states and foreign jurisdictions. The Company is no longer subject to income tax examinations by tax authorities for years prior to 2008 for the majority of tax jurisdictions where the Company files tax returns.
The Company’s U.S. federal income tax returns are not currently under examination by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Florida income tax returns for tax years 2015 and 2016 are under examination. The 2016 pre-acquisition Italian income tax return for Faster is also under examination. To date, there have not been any significant proposed adjustments that have not been accounted for in the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Audit outcomes and the timing of audit settlements are subject to significant uncertainty. It is reasonably possible that within the next twelve months, the Company will resolve some or all of the matters presently under consideration and there could be significant increases or decreases to unrecognized tax benefits.
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.
