The Company had federal and state net operating tax loss carry-forwards of $7,615,981 and $11,720,048, respectively as of December 31, 2023. The tax loss carry-forwards are available to offset future taxable income with the federal and state carry-forwards beginning to expire in 2029.


In 2023 and 2022, net deferred tax assets did not change due to the full allowance. The gross amount of the asset is predominantly due to the net operating loss carry-forward. The realization of the tax benefits is subject to the sufficiency of taxable income in future years. The combined deferred tax assets represent the amounts expected to be realized before expiration.


The Company periodically assesses the likelihood that it will be able to recover its deferred tax assets. The Company considers all available evidence, both positive and negative, including historical levels of income, expectations and risks associated with estimates of future taxable income and ongoing prudent and feasible profits. As a result of this analysis of all available evidence, both positive and negative, the Company concluded that it is more likely than not that its net deferred tax assets will ultimately not be recovered and, accordingly, a valuation allowance was recorded as of December 31, 2023, and 2022.


A reconciliation of the Company’s effective income tax rate to the expected income tax rate, computed by applying the federal statutory income tax rate of 21.0% for each of the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 to the Company’s loss before provision (benefit) for income taxes, is as follows:


 Schedule of expected income tax expense benefit                
    2023   2022
U.S. Federal Statutory Rate     21.0%       21.0 %
State Taxes     7.3 %       7.1 %
Other permanent and prior period adjustments     9.1%       %
Valuation allowance     (37.4)%       (28.1 )%
Income tax provision     %       %
