|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
|Income Taxes||INCOME TAXES
We recorded an income tax provision of $1.3 billion and an income tax benefit of $191 million during the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, which was calculated using the annual effective tax rate method.
The effective tax rate was 17.0% and 19.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively, and was less than the statutory tax rate primarily due to income allocated to non-controlling interest not taxable to Cheniere. The change in our effective tax rate between comparable periods was driven by discrete tax items, primarily related to stock-based compensation award vestings, which had a larger impact on our effective tax rate in 2022 due to lower pre-tax income.We are not subject to the 15% corporate alternative minimum tax ("CAMT") in 2023 based on enacted law and regulatory guidance; however, our CAMT status for 2023 could change in the future, depending on new regulations or regulatory guidance issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
