Deferred tax assets and valuation allowance


The Company had, subject to limitation, approximately $18.4 million of net operating loss carryforwards at December 31, 2022, of which approximately $6.0 million will begin expiring in 2034. The remaining balance of approximately $12.4 million will carry forward indefinitely. A 100% valuation allowance has been provided for the deferred tax benefits resulting from the net operating loss carryover due to a lack of earnings history. In addressing the realizability of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences are deductible. The valuation allowance increased by approximately $0.8 million and $0.5 million for the years ended December 31, 2022, and 2021, respectively. Significant components of deferred tax assets are as follows:
