|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
|Income Taxes||Income Taxes
During the periods presented herein prior to the Merger, the Company reported income taxes on the consolidated income tax returns of Landsea Holdings since it was a wholly owned subsidiary of Landsea Holdings. The income tax provision and related balances in these consolidated financial statements have been calculated as if the Company filed a separate tax return and was operating as a separate business from Landsea Holdings. Therefore, cash tax payments and items of current and deferred taxes during that period may not be reflective of the Company’s actual tax balances.
The effective tax rate of the Company was 28.5% and 4.9% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 with a benefit rate of 24.2% and 25.2% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively. The difference between the statutory tax rate and the effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2021 is primarily related to state income taxes net of federal income tax benefits, estimated deduction limitations for executive compensation, warrant fair market value adjustments, the gain on forgiveness of the PPP loan, and tax credits for energy efficient homes. The difference between the statutory tax rate and the effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2020 is primarily related to state income taxes net of federal income tax benefits and tax credits for energy efficient homes.
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.
