|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effect of temporary differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for financial reporting and tax purposes. Components of the Company’s deferred tax assets and liabilities as of September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, are as follows:
As of September 30, 2017, the total deferred tax assets and liabilities presented above relate to the Company's TRSs. The Company recognizes the tax benefits of uncertain tax positions only when the position is "more likely than not" to be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities based on the technical merits of the tax position. The Company’s policy is to record interest and penalties on uncertain tax positions as part of tax expense. Tax years subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2012 remain open to examination by federal and state tax authorities.
Total income tax expense (benefit) differs from the amount computed by applying the federal statutory income tax rate of 35 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016 to income from operations and other income and expense for the periods presented, as follows:
Total income taxes are computed by applying the federal statutory rate of 35 percent plus a blended state income tax rate. Corridor Public Holdings, Inc. and Corridor Private Holdings, Inc. had a blended state rate of approximately 3.78 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2.82 percent for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016. CorEnergy BBWS, Inc. does not record a provision for state income taxes because it operates only in Wyoming, which does not have state income tax. Because Mowood Corridor, Inc. and Corridor MoGas, Inc. primarily only operate in the state of Missouri, a blended state income tax rate of 5 percent was used for the operations of both TRSs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, all of the income tax expense (benefit) presented above relates to the assets and activities held in the Company's TRSs. The components of income tax expense (benefit) include the following for the periods presented:
As of December 31, 2016, the TRSs had an aggregate net operating loss of $3.0 million. The net operating loss may be carried forward for 20 years. If not utilized, this net operating loss will expire as follows: $90 thousand, $804 thousand, $479 thousand and $1.7 million in the years ending December 31, 2033, 2034, 2035 and 2036 respectively. The amount of deferred tax asset for net operating losses as of September 30, 2017 includes amounts for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.
