|Income Taxes||INCOME TAXES
We recorded a provision for income taxes of $5 and $4,932 for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The estimated effective annualized tax rate impacted by the period discrete items is an expense of 0.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to an expense of 13.0% of estimated effective annualized tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2022.
We recorded a benefit for income taxes of $498 and provision of $7,239 for the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The estimated effective annualized tax rate impacted by the period discrete items is a benefit of 5.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2023, compared to an expense of 12.2% of estimated effective annualized tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2022.
The principal reasons for the difference between the statutory rate and the estimated annual effective rate for 2023 were the effects of investment tax credits which we are entitled from solar and storage plants placed into service or are forecasted to be placed into service during 2023, stock plan compensation deductions and deductions related to the Section 179D.
Under GAAP accounting rules deferred taxes are shown on a net basis in the condensed consolidated financial statements based on taxing jurisdiction. Under the guidance, we have recorded long term deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities based on the underlying jurisdiction in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The following table sets forth the total amounts of gross unrecognized tax benefits:
The amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would favorably affect the effective income tax rate in any future periods was $450 at June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 (net of the federal benefit on state amounts).
