13. Income Tax Expense
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, we had an income tax expense of $6.1 million and a benefit of $27.7 million, respectively.
During 2018, we implemented certain tax restructuring strategies that created our ability to utilize the net operating loss carryforwards of Prestige, for which we had previously provided a full valuation allowance. As disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, we engaged in a section 382 study to determine the amount of the Prestige net operating loss carryforwards that could be utilized against future taxable income. In March 2019, we completed this study resulting in a tax benefit of $35.7 million in connection with the reversal of substantially all of the valuation allowance.
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.
