|INCOME TAXES||INCOME TAXES
The Company recorded income taxes of $454 million (12.8% effective tax rate) and $622 million (18.1% effective tax rate) during the three months ended September 29, 2023 and September 30, 2022, respectively. The Company recorded income taxes of $1,753 million (16.7% effective tax rate) and $1,671 million (18.2% effective tax rate) during the nine months ended September 29, 2023 and September 30, 2022, respectively.
The Company’s effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2023 and September 30, 2022 vary from the statutory U.S. federal tax rate of 21.0% 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.
The Company’s effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 29, 2023 included $186 million and $311 million, respectively, of net tax benefits related to various discrete tax items, including return to provision adjustments and the net tax impact of agreed-upon audit issues. The Company’s effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 29, 2023 also included a tax benefit of $90 million related to a change in tax law in a certain foreign jurisdiction.
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.
