|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
|Income Taxes||INCOME TAXES
The following table presents details related to our income taxes:
Pursuant to ASC 740, we are required to consider all items (including items recorded in discontinued operations and 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 $3.8 million as a result of the income included in discontinued operations and 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. While AFI has no history of tax audits on a stand-alone basis, Armstrong World Industries ("AWI") was routinely audited by U.S. federal, state and local, and non-U.S. taxing authorities. Accordingly, 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 2019 to our unrecognized tax benefits as of December 31, 2018.
As of September 30, 2019, we consider foreign unremitted earnings to be permanently reinvested.
The entire disclosure for income taxes. Disclosures may include net deferred tax liability or asset recognized in an enterprise's statement of financial position, net change during the year in the total valuation allowance, approximate tax effect of each type of temporary difference and carryforward that gives rise to a significant portion of deferred tax liabilities and deferred tax assets, utilization of a tax carryback, and tax uncertainties information.
