NOTE 6. INCOME TAXES
Our effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 28, 2020, were 25.7 percent and 21.6 percent, respectively. Our effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, were 21.4 percent and 21.1 percent, respectively, and contained immaterial discrete items.
The three months ended June 28, 2020, contained unfavorable discrete items of $14 million, primarily due to changes in tax reserves on certain U.S. tax matters.
The six months ended June 28, 2020, contained $4 million of favorable net discrete tax items, primarily due to favorable tax changes within India's 2020-2021 Union Budget of India (India Tax Law Change) passed in March of 2020, partially offset by unfavorable changes in tax reserves in the second quarter of 2020. The India Tax Law Change eliminated the dividend distribution tax and replaced it with a lower rate withholding tax as the burden shifted from the dividend payor to the dividend recipient for a net favorable income statement impact of $35 million.
The India Tax Law Change resulted in the following adjustments to the Income Statement in the first half of 2020:
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.
