NOTE 18—INCOME TAXES
For the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the effective income tax rates were 22.0% and 22.7%, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, the effective income tax rates were 18.2% and 21.7%, respectively. The effective income tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was impacted by discrete items, primarily the passage of a Swiss tax reform package in May 2019, which resulted in a $6.6 million second-quarter tax benefit related to the revaluation of the Company’s Swiss deferred tax assets at a higher rate.
