Income Taxes
6. Income Taxes

The provision for income taxes for interim periods is based on an estimate of the annual effective tax rate adjusted to reflect the impact of discrete items. Significant management judgment is required in projecting ordinary income (loss) to estimate the Company’s annual effective tax rate.

The effective tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended October 27, 2012 was 35.2%, compared to 38.9% for the thirteen weeks ended October 29, 2011. The effective tax rate reduction was primarily related to state income tax credits received and discrete items recorded during the thirteen week period. The impact of these items to the effective tax rate was approximately 4% for the quarter.

The effective tax rate for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 27, 2012, was 37.2%, compared to 39.6% for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2011. The effective tax rate reduction was primarily related to state income tax credits received and discrete items recorded during the third quarter. The impact of these items to the effective tax rate was approximately 1.5% for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 27, 2012. The valuation allowance recorded against the deferred tax asset arising from the net operating loss of the Company’s Japanese subsidiary decreased the effective tax rate by approximately 0.4% for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 27, 2012, when compared to the thirty-nine weeks ended October 29, 2011 due to a lower net operating loss for the thirty-nine weeks ended October 27, 2012.
