For the years ending 2012 and 2011, the Bank recorded a net deferred tax asset of $425,404. The Bank reported a valuation allowance of $1,179,696 at the end of 2012 which is available to offset future earnings of the Bank. The deferred tax asset peaked in 2009 at $2,052,887, 33 months after opening, and was initially offset with a full valuation allowance. As the Bank has generated a profitable operation over the past 12 quarters, both the net deferred tax asset and the valuation allowance have steadily declined as a result of improved earnings. As of December 31, 2012, the Bank carried a remaining deferred tax valuation allowance of $859,451 which is available to be recognized and offsets future earnings.
At December 31, 2012 shareholder's equity totaled $13,353,813, an increase of $726,154 or 5.7% compared to $12,627,659 as of year end 2011.
