Prior to June 7, 2021, the Company was a limited liability company taxed as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The Company was generally not directly subject to income taxes under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and most applicable state laws. Therefore, taxable income or loss was reported to the members for inclusion in their respective tax returns.

After June 7, 2021, the Group is taxed as a Corporation for U.S. income tax purposes and similar sections of the state income tax laws. The Group’s effective tax rate is based on pre-tax earnings, enacted U.S. statutory tax rates, non-deductible expenses, and certain tax rate differences between U.S. and foreign jurisdictions. The foreign subsidiaries file income tax returns in the United Kingdom, France, Australia, and Singapore as necessary. For tax reporting purposes, the taxable income or loss with respect to the 45% ownership in the joint venture operating in Mexico will be reflected in the income tax returns filed under that country’s jurisdiction. The Group’s provision for income taxes consists of provisions for federal, state, and foreign income taxes.
The provision for income taxes for the three months ended April 2, 2022 and March 27, 2021 includes amounts related to entities within the group taxed as corporations in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Australia, and Singapore. The Company determines its provision for income taxes for interim periods using an estimate of its annual effective tax rate on year to date ordinary income and records any changes affecting the estimated annual effective tax rate in the interim period in which the change occurs. Additionally, the income tax effects of significant unusual or infrequently occurring items are recognized entirely within the period in which the event occurs.
During the three months ended April 2, 2022 and March 27, 2021, the Company recorded a total income tax provision (benefit) of approximately $6,607 and $(155) on pre-tax income of approximately $26,311 and $14,564 resulting in an effective tax rate of 25.1% and (1.1)%, respectively. The effective tax rates for these periods were primarily impacted by the change in tax status of the Group, statutory rate differentials, changes in estimated tax rates, and permanent differences.
