Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]  



For the period from January 1, 2018 to April 25, 2018, the Company's subsidiaries operated as limited liability companies and passed all income and loss to each member based on their proportionate interest in the Company. Accordingly, no provision for federal and state income taxes has been made in these consolidated financial statements for this period. Effective April 26, 2018, the Company accounts for income tax using the liability method prescribed by ASC 740, "Income Taxes". Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates that will be in effect in the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The deferred tax assets at December 31, 2019 and 2018 consist only of net operating loss carryforwards. The net deferred tax asset has been fully offset by a valuation allowance because of the uncertainty of the attainment of future taxable income.


The items accounting for the difference between income taxes at the effective statutory rate and the provision for income taxes for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 were as follows:


    2019     2018  
Income tax expense (benefit) at U.S. statutory rate   $ (1,520,555 )   $ (2,079,991 )
Income tax benefit on LLC losses prior to merger     -       555,608  
Non-deductible expenses     1,057,052       1,125,358  
Change in valuation allowance     463,503       399,025  
Total provision for income tax   $ -     $ -  


The Company's approximate net deferred tax asset as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 was as follows:


Deferred Tax Asset:   December 31,
    December 31,
Net operating loss carryforward   $ 862,528     $ 399,025  
Total deferred tax asset before valuation allowance     862,528       399,025  
Valuation allowance     (862,528 )     (399,025 )
Net deferred tax asset   $ -     $ -  


The net operating loss carryforward was approximately $4,107,000 at December 31, 2019. The Company provided a valuation allowance equal to the net deferred income tax asset as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 because it was not known whether future taxable income will be sufficient to utilize the loss carryforward. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the valuation allowance increased by $463,503. Additionally, the future utilization of the net operating loss carryforward to offset future taxable income is subject to an annual limitation as a result of ownership changes that may occur in the future. The potential tax benefit arising from the loss carryforward may be carried forward indefinitely subject to usage limitations.


The Company does not have any uncertain tax positions or events leading to uncertainty in a tax position. The Company's 2019 and 2018 Corporate Income Tax Returns are subject to Internal Revenue Service examination.
