6. Income Taxes

        The Company files U.S. federal income tax returns and income tax returns in various state and local jurisdictions. The Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations for tax years through 2005. With limited exception, the Company is no longer subject to state and local income tax examinations for tax years through 2008.

        As previously disclosed, during the three months ended July 31, 2010, the Company concluded that a full valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax assets was necessary in order to reflect the Company's assessment of its ability to realize the benefits of those deferred tax assets. The Company made this determination after weighing both negative and positive evidence in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, "Income Taxes" ("ASC 740"), which requires that deferred tax assets be reduced by a valuation allowance if, based on all available evidence, it is considered more likely than not that some portion or all of the recorded deferred tax assets will not be realized in a future period. The evidence weighed included a historical three-year cumulative loss related to earnings before taxes in addition to an assessment of sources of taxable income, availability of tax planning strategies, and future projections of earnings. The Company will continue to maintain a valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets until the Company believes it is more likely than not that these assets will be realized in the future. If sufficient positive evidence arises in the future indicating that all or a portion of the deferred tax assets meet the more-likely-than-not standard under ASC 740, the valuation allowance would be reversed accordingly in the period that such determination is made. As of October 27, 2012, the Company's valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets was $61.9 million.

        At January 28, 2012, the Company reported a total liability of $1.6 million in other liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet for unrecognized tax benefits, including interest and penalties, all of which would impact the Company's effective tax rate if recognized. There were no material changes to the liability for unrecognized tax benefits during the nine months ended October 27, 2012.
