|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
5. Income Taxes
The income tax benefit recorded during 2018 is a result of our historical alternative minimum tax payments becoming fully refundable in 2018. Periodically, we perform assessments of the realization of our net deferred tax assets considering all available evidence, both positive and negative. Based on our historical operating losses, combined with our plans to continue to invest in our revenue growth and generate losses for the next few years, we have a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets. As of September 30, 2018, our net operating loss carryforwards on a gross basis were $65.0 million and $19.4 million for federal and state, respectively.
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.
