Income Taxes 10. Income Taxes

BVH and its subsidiaries file a consolidated U.S. federal income tax return and income tax returns in various state and foreign jurisdictions. With certain exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2017 for federal returns and 2016 for state returns.

The Company’s effective income tax rate was approximately 29% and 15% during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. Effective income tax rates for interim periods are based upon the Company’s then current estimated annual rate. The effective income tax rate varies based upon the estimate of taxable earnings as well as on the mix of taxable earnings in the various states in which the Company and its subsidiaries operate. As such, the Company’s effective tax rates for the 2021 and 2020 periods reflect an estimate of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on its annual taxable earnings, state taxes, non-deductible items and changes in valuation allowance on deferred tax assets for each respective year.

Certain of the Company’s state filings are under routine examination. While there is no assurance as to the results of these audits, the Company does not currently anticipate any material adjustments in connection with these examinations.

In May 2015, BVH entered into Agreement to Allocate Consolidated Income Tax Liability and Benefits with Bluegreen, and its other subsidiaries at the time pursuant to which, among other customary terms and conditions, the parties agreed to file consolidated federal tax returns. Under the agreement, the parties calculate their respective income tax liabilities and attributes as if each of them was a separate filer. If any tax attributes are used by another party to the agreement to offset its tax liability, the party providing the benefit will receive an amount for the tax benefits realized. BVH received $11.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021 pursuant to the Agreement. BVH did not make or receive any payments under the Agreement during the three months ended March

31, 2020. In connection with BVH’s spin-off of BBX Capital on September 30, 2020, the Agreement was terminated with respect to the subsidiaries of BVH other than Woodbridge and Bluegreen.

As of March 31, 2021, the Company did not have any significant amounts accrued for interest and penalties or recorded for uncertain tax positions.
