Note 7 – Income taxes
Income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are recorded at the Company’s estimated annual effective income tax rate, subject to adjustments for discrete events, should they occur. The Company’s effective income tax rate including discrete events was 4.7% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to 84.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The Company’s annualized effective tax rate is estimated at approximately 19.5% for 2022. The Company’s projected annual effective tax rate differs from the statutory U.S. tax rate of 21% primarily due to the following: (i) tax credits for FICA taxes on certain employees’ tips (ii) taxes owed in foreign jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Italy; (iii) taxes owed in state and local jurisdictions; and (iv) the tax effect of non-deductible compensation. Income tax provision recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 included the discrete period tax benefits resulting from the vesting of restricted stock units.
