10. INCOME TAXES
The provision for income taxes for the three months ended April 1, 2023 and April 2, 2022 was 22.8% and 22.4% of pretax income, respectively. These effective rates fluctuate relative to the levels of income and different tax rates in effect among the countries in which the Company sells products. The change in the comparable prior-year quarter is primarily due to an overall decrease in discrete tax benefits.
At April 1, 2023, the Company had an unrecognized tax benefit of $8.4 including accrued interest. If recognized, $2.7 of unrecognized tax benefit would reduce the effective tax rate in future periods. The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. Interest accrued as of April 1, 2023 is not considered material to the Company’s Consolidated, Unaudited Financial Statements.
The Company is currently under state audit and remains subject to income tax examinations in various state and foreign jurisdictions for tax years 2017-2021. The Company believes it has adequately reserved for income taxes that could result from any audit adjustments.
