Income Taxes
The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as income tax of foreign and state tax jurisdictions. The tax years 2014-2017 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject, except the Internal Revenue Service for which the tax years 2015-2017 remain open.
For the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2018 the effective tax rate for the Company's continuing operations was 4.6% and 59.4%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 29, 2018 differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily due to state income taxes, income of our Philippines subsidiary that is subject to different effective tax rates, and share-based compensation that is either not deductible for tax purposes or for which the tax deductible amount is different than the financial reporting amount.
For the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 30, 2017, the effective tax rate for the Company's continuing operations was 3.0% and (905.7)%, respectively. The effective tax rate for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 30, 2017 differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate primarily as a result of the partial release of the valuation allowance maintained against the Company's deferred tax assets.
