property rights to our Swiss entity did not impact the Consolidated Financial Statements for the periods presented. We currently do not expect that the change will materially impact our future annual Swiss tax obligation.
We file federal, state, and foreign income tax returns in many jurisdictions in the U.S. and abroad. Years prior to 2014 are considered closed for most significant jurisdictions. Certain of our unrecognized tax benefits could reverse based on the normal expiration of various statutes of limitations, which could affect our effective tax rate in the period in which they reverse.
We are subject to the examination of our income tax returns by the Internal Revenue Service and other tax authorities. The outcome of these audits cannot be predicted with certainty. Management regularly assesses the likelihood of adverse outcomes resulting from these examinations to determine the adequacy of our provision for income taxes. If any issues addressed in our tax audits are resolved in a manner not consistent with management’s expectations, we could be required to adjust our provision for income taxes in the period such resolution occurs.
