Income Tax Disclosure [Abstract]  

Prior to July 25, 2018, substantially all of the Company's operations were conducted through pass-through entities for income tax purposes, and as such the Company had no material income tax accounting reflected in its financial statements for financial reporting purposes since substantially all taxable income and deductions were "passed through" to unconsolidated owners. Effective July 25, 2018, the Company is a "C Corp" and reports its income and deductions for income tax purposes. Accordingly, effective July 25, 2018, the consolidated financial statements of the Company reflect the accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes. The Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 reflect unaudited pro-forma income tax disclosure amounts to illustrate the income tax effects had the Company been subject to federal and state income taxes.

The Company's effective income tax rate was a benefit of approximately 21% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.
The Company recognizes the tax effects of uncertain tax positions only if such positions are more likely than not to be sustained based solely upon its technical merits at the reporting date. The Company refers to the difference between the tax benefit recognized in its financial statements and the tax benefit claimed in the income tax return as an "unrecognized tax benefit." As of March 31, 2019, the net amount of our unrecognized tax benefits was not material.

The Company is subject to U.S. federal income tax and income tax in multiple state jurisdictions. Tax periods for 2015 and all years thereafter remain open to examination by the federal and state taxing jurisdictions and tax periods for 2014 and all years thereafter remain open for certain state taxing jurisdictions to which the Company is subject.
