|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
NOTE 10 — INCOME TAXES
Due to our cumulative loss position, historical net operating losses (“NOLs”), and other available evidence related to our ability to generate taxable income, we continue to maintain a full valuation allowance against our U.S. net deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017. Accordingly, we have not recorded a provision for federal or state income taxes during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018. The benefit recorded in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 is for foreign income taxes.
In 2017, we experienced ownership changes as defined by Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 382, and an analysis of the annual limitation on the utilization of our NOLs was performed at that time. It was determined that IRC Section 382 will not limit the use of our NOLs over the carryover period. We will continue to monitor trading activity in our shares that may cause an additional ownership change, which may ultimately affect our ability to fully utilize our existing NOL carryforwards.
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.
