|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]
We recorded an income tax benefit of $191 million and income tax provision of $89 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
Our effective tax rate of 19.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 corresponds to an income tax benefit recorded for the period and was lower than the statutory income tax rate primarily due to income allocated to non-controlling interest that is not taxable to Cheniere partially offset by tax benefits related to stock-based compensation awards that vested in the quarter. Our effective tax rate of 13.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 corresponds to an income tax provision recorded for the period and was lower than the statutory income tax rate primarily due to income allocated to non-controlling interest that is not taxable to Cheniere.
Our effective tax rate is subject to variation prospectively due to variability in our pre-tax and taxable earnings and the proportion of such earnings attributable to non-controlling interests.
The entire disclosure for income taxes.
