Note 14. Income Taxes
The Company has estimated net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $55,400,000 and $44,200,000 as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The potential benefit of these net operating losses has not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not that it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years. In December 2017, tax legislation was enacted limiting the deduction for net operating losses from taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017 to 80% of current year taxable income, eliminating net operating loss carrybacks for losses arising in taxable years ending after December 31, 2017, and allowing net operating losses to be carried forward indefinitely. On March 27, 2020 the Coronavirus Aid Relief, and Economic Security Act was enacted which modified the prior legislation to allow 100% of the net operating losses arising in tax years 2018, 2019, and 2020 to be carried back five years. The Company does not have taxable income available in the carryback period. Net operating losses originating in taxable years beginning prior to January 1, 2018 are still subject to former carryover rules. The net operating loss carryforwards generated prior to this date of approximately $11,000,000 will expire between 2022 through 2038.
The Company files income tax returns on a consolidated basis in the United States federal jurisdiction. As of December 31, 2021, the tax returns for the Company for the years ending 2019 through 2021 remain open to examination by the Internal Revenue Service. The Company and its subsidiaries are not currently under examination for any period.
As a result of the company becoming a majority-owned subsidiary of Camber as discussed in Note 1, the Company has undergone an ownership change as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, and the Company’s tax net operating loss carry forwards generated prior to the ownership change will be subject to an annual limitation, which could reduce or defer the utilization of these losses.
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.
