|INCOME TAXES||INCOME TAXES
The effective tax rate for the three and six months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020 was (4.6)% and (3.2)% and 1.0% and 0.0%, respectively. The effective tax rates differed from the federal statutory tax rate of 21% during each of these periods due primarily to unbenefited losses experienced in jurisdictions with valuation allowances on deferred tax assets as well as the forecasted mix of earnings in domestic and international jurisdictions.
As of September 30, 2021, including interest and penalties, the Company had $108.4 million of unrecognized tax benefits, $89.9 million of which, if recognized, would favorably affect the effective tax rate without consideration of the valuation allowance. After taking into account the valuation allowance, of the $89.9 million, only $7.5 million, if recognized, would favorably affect the effective tax rate. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had accrued interest and penalties related to these unrecognized tax benefits of $1.3 million. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to income tax matters in the income tax provision in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. As of September 30, 2021, $100.9 million of unrecognized tax benefits were recorded as a contra deferred tax asset in other long-term assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and $7.5 million (including interest and penalties) were recorded in other long-term liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets. During the next 12 months, it is reasonably possible that approximately $14.0 million of tax benefits, inclusive of interest and penalties, that are currently unrecognized could be recognized as a result of the expiration of applicable statutes of limitations. After taking into account the valuation allowance, of the $14.0 million, only $1.0 million would affect the effective tax rate.
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.
