|Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]|
The effective tax rates for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 were 23.4% and 29.3%. The decrease in the effective tax rate during the three months ended December 31, 2016 was primarily due to the tax benefit recognized on share-based compensation and the favorable geographic mix of pretax income. These favorable items were partially offset by a reduction of the tax benefit from the domestic manufacturer’s deduction that resulted from the funding of our U.S. defined benefit pension plan.
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.
