The Company has final (considered final) tax assessments through the 2014 tax year.


B. U.S. subsidiaries:


The U.S. subsidiaries are taxed under United States federal and state tax rules. Income tax is calculated based on a U.S. federal tax rate of 21%.


The U.S. subsidiaries estimated federal tax loss carryforward amounted to $822 as of December 31, 2020. Such losses are available to offset any future U.S. taxable income of the U.S. subsidiaries income for an indefinite period of time.

C. Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of net operating loss and temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. Significant components of the Company’s deferred tax assets are as follows:

In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that all or some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of the deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences are deductible and net operating losses are utilized. Based on consideration of these factors, the Company recorded a full valuation allowance as of December 31, 2020 and 2019.
