|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
Due to our cumulative loss position and historical net operating losses (“NOLs”), we have recorded a full valuation allowance against our U.S. deferred tax assets at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016. Accordingly, the Company has not recorded a provision for federal or state income taxes during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. Any provision recorded in the accompanying Consolidated Financial Statements is for foreign income taxes.
We experienced ownership changes as defined by Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 382 in 2008, 2010 and 2012. An analysis of the annual limitation on the utilization of our NOLs was performed in accordance with IRC Section 382. 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.
