On December 22, 2017, the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) was signed into law. The Act contains significant changes to corporate taxes, including a permanent reduction of the U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018. The Company’s statutory rate for fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 was 24.53%, based on a fiscal year blended rate calculation. The 21% U.S. corporate tax rate will apply to fiscal years ending September 30, 2019 and each year thereafter.
Additionally, the Act requires a one-time remeasurement of certain tax related assets and liabilities. During the first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Company made certain estimates related to the impact of the Act, including the remeasurement of deferred taxes at the new expected tax rate and a revised effective tax rate for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018. The amounts recorded for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018 for the remeasurement of deferred taxes principally relate to the reduction in the U.S. corporate income tax rate. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, the Company has recorded a tax benefit of approximately $9,847,000 to account for these deferred tax impacts.
