Income Tax Benefit/Expense
Income Tax Expense (Benefit)
Income tax expense was $1.9 million and $5.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Despite the pre-tax loss for the third quarter of 2017, we recognized income tax expense due to the jurisdictional mix of income and loss during the quarter, along with our continued inability to recognize the benefits associated with certain losses as a result of valuation allowances.
