Income Tax Expense
The effective tax rates were 34.7% and 33.2% for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. The fiscal 2013 tax rate was positively impacted by the effect of retroactive tax legislation passed in the third quarter extending certain tax benefits. The fourth quarter tax rate was positively impacted by a change in the estimated benefit the Company expects to receive from a tax deduction. The Company estimates that its effective tax rate on future earnings will approximate 38%.
