|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
NOTE 14. INCOME TAXES
There was no provision for income taxes for 2018 and 2017 due to net operating losses and doubt as to the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern resulting in a 100% valuation allowance. Years from 2016 forward are open to examination by tax authorities in the United States. Years from 2018 forward are open to examination by Canadian tax authorities.
The provision for income taxes differs from the amount computed by applying the federal statutory income tax rate of 21% (2017 - 21%) on operations due primarily to permanent differences attributable to organizational expenses.
The significant components of the net deferred tax asset were as follows:
A valuation allowance has been established to offset deferred tax assets. The Company’s accumulated net operating losses in the United States were approximately $25.5 million at December 31, 2018 and begin to expire if not utilized beginning in the year 2033. The Company’s accumulated non-capital tax losses in Canada were approximately $200,000 at December 31, 2018 and will expire in 2038. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law on December 22, 2017, and reduced the corporate income tax rate from 34% to 21%. The Company’s deferred tax assets, liabilities, and valuation allowance have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the new tax law.
The entire disclosure for income taxes. Disclosures may include net deferred tax liability or asset recognized in an enterprise's statement of financial position, net change during the year in the total valuation allowance, approximate tax effect of each type of temporary difference and carryforward that gives rise to a significant portion of deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets, utilization of a tax carryback, and tax uncertainties information.
