Accounting Standards Codification 740 (“ASC 740”) requires companies to apply their estimated annual effective tax rate on a year-to-date basis in each interim period. These rates are derived, in part, from expected annual pre-tax income or loss. In the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 26, 2021 and the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020, the Company applied an estimated annual effective tax rate to the interim period pre-tax loss to calculate the income tax benefit.

For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 26, 2021, the effective income tax rate was (73.0)% and 29.7%, respectively. The Company recorded an income tax provision for the thirteen weeks ended June 26, 2021 of $1,428 and an income tax benefit for the twenty-six weeks ended June 26, 2021 of $5,225. The effective tax rate for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 26, 2021 was the result of an estimated increase in GILTI from the Company's Canadian operations, state and foreign income taxes, non-deductible transaction expenses, and non-deductible stock compensation.

For the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020, the effective income tax rate was 15.1% and 20.6%, respectively. The Company recorded an income tax benefit for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020 of $895 and $5,132, respectively. The effective tax rate for the thirteen and twenty-six weeks ended June 27, 2020 was primarily due to non-deductible stock compensation, and state and foreign income taxes.
On March 27, 2020, the CARES Act was signed into law by the President of the United States. The CARES Act included, among other things, corporate income tax relief in the form of accelerated alternative minimum tax ("AMT") refunds, allowed employers to defer certain payroll tax payments throughout 2020, and provided favorable corporate interest deductions for the 2020 reporting period.
