|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
5. Income Taxes
Periodically, we perform assessments of the realization of our net deferred tax assets considering all available evidence, both positive and negative. With the sale of the Gaiam Brand business in 2016, we utilized the majority of our deferred tax assets to offset the associated gains from the sale and released the valuation allowance we had in place. During 2017, we determined the historical operating losses generated by the business, combined with our plans to continue to invest in our revenue growth and generate losses for the next few years, indicated a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets was appropriate in 2017. As of March 31, 2017, our gross net operating loss carryforwards were $10.1 million and $0.5 million for federal and state, respectively.
