As of December 31, 2019, the Company had no U.S. federal and state net operating loss carryovers ("NOLs") available to offset future taxable income. In accordance with Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, deductibility of the Company's NOLs may be subject to an annual limitation in the event of a change in control as defined under the regulations.


In assessing the realization of the deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion of all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. After consideration of all of the information available, management believes that significant uncertainty exists with respect to future realization of the deferred tax assets and has therefore established a full valuation allowance. For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the change in the valuation allowance was $245,810 and 107,907, respectively.


A reconciliation of the federal income tax rate to the Company's effective tax rate for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 is as follows:


    Year Ended December 31,  
    2019     2018  
Statutory federal income tax rate     21.0 %     21.0 %
State taxes, net of federal tax benefit     0.0 %     0.0 %
True-ups     (14.1 )%     0.0 %
Change in valuation allowance     148.1 %     7.4 %
Effective income tax rate     155.0 %     28.4 %


The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction in various state and local jurisdictions and is subject to examination by the various taxing authorities.
