Income Taxes



The tax provisions for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were computed using the estimated effective tax rates applicable to each of the domestic and international taxable jurisdictions for the full year. The Company’s tax rate is subject to management’s quarterly review and revision, as necessary. The Company’s provision for income tax expense and effective income tax rate are significantly impacted by the mix of the Company’s domestic and foreign earnings (loss) before income taxes. In the foreign jurisdictions in which the Company has operations, the applicable statutory rates range from 0.0% to 34.0%, which is on average significantly lower than the U.S. federal and state combined statutory rate of approximately 24.5%. The Company’s effective tax rate was 20.4% and 7.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 and 20.3% and negative 28.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020. The increases primarily reflect the increased profitability in certain higher tax jurisdictions, including the U.S. and China, as they move away from shutdowns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
