Note 8. Income Taxes

In the year ended March 31, 2010, the Company completed a study to assess whether a change in control has occurred that would affect the ability to monetize tax attributes in future periods. The Company determined, based on the results of the study, a change in control did not occur for purposes of Internal Revenue Code Section 382. The Company, after considering all available evidence, fully reserved for these and its other deferred tax assets since it is more likely than not such benefits will not be realized in future periods. The Company has incurred losses for financial reporting and income tax purposes for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2011. Accordingly, the Company is continuing to fully reserve for its deferred tax assets. The Company will continue to evaluate its deferred tax assets to determine whether any changes in circumstances could affect the realization of their future benefit. If it is determined in future periods that portions of the Company’s deferred income tax assets satisfy the realization standards, the valuation allowance will be reduced accordingly.

The Company only recognizes tax benefits from an uncertain tax position if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position are measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate resolution. To date, the Company has not recognized unrecognized tax benefits in its financial statements.

The Company files a consolidated U.S. federal income tax return and a state income tax return in the state of California. The Company is also subject to filing requirements in foreign jurisdictions, principally Mexico and The Netherlands. The Company’s evaluation of uncertain tax matters was performed for tax years ended through March 31, 2011. Generally, the Company is subject to audit for the years ended March 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009 and may be subject to audit for amounts relating to net operating loss and other attribute carryforwards generated in periods prior to March 31, 2009. The Company has elected to retain its existing accounting policy with respect to the treatment of interest and penalties attributable to income taxes, and continues to reflect interest and penalties attributable to income taxes, to the extent they arise, as a component of its income tax expense. The Company believes that its income tax positions and deductions would be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments, other than those identified above that would result in a material change to its financial position. The Company does not have any tax positions for which it is reasonably possible the total amount of gross unrecognized tax benefits will increase or decrease within twelve months of March 31, 2011.
