Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]  
The Company recorded income taxes of $940 million (23.2 percent effective tax rate) and $665 million (19.2 percent effective tax rate) during the three months ended March 31, 2023 and April 1, 2022, respectively.
The Company’s effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2023 and April 1, 2022 vary from the statutory U.S. federal tax rate of 21.0 percent primarily due to the tax impact of significant operating and nonoperating items, as described in Note 12, along with the tax benefits of having significant earnings generated outside of the United States and significant earnings generated in investments accounted for under the equity method, both of which are generally taxed at rates lower than the statutory U.S. federal tax rate.
On November 18, 2020, the Tax Court issued the Opinion regarding the Company’s 2015 litigation with the IRS involving transfer pricing tax adjustments in which the court predominantly sided with the IRS. The Company strongly disagrees with the Opinion and intends to vigorously defend its position. Refer to Note 9 for additional information on the tax litigation.
