Pursuant to ASC 740, we are required to consider all items (including items recorded in other comprehensive income) in determining the amount of tax benefit that results from a loss from continuing operations. As such, we recorded year to date income tax benefits of $0.3 million, as of March 31, 2020 and 2019, as a result of the income included in other comprehensive income. The remaining tax expense relates to the mix of income among tax jurisdictions.
Upon audit, taxing authorities may challenge all or part of an uncertain income tax position. AFI regularly assesses the outcome of potential examinations in each of the taxing jurisdictions when determining the adequacy of the amount of unrecognized tax benefit recorded. We do not expect to record any material changes during 2020 to our unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2019.
As of March 31, 2020, we consider foreign unremitted earnings to be permanently reinvested.
