Income Taxes [Abstract]  


The Company uses the liability method, where deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial and income tax reporting purposes.


The net deferred asset generated by the loss carry-forward has been fully reserved. The cumulative net operating loss carry-forward is approximately $7,573,280 for 2016 and $4,220,577 for 2015 and will begin expiring in 2034. Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code generally imposes an annual limitation on the amount of net operating loss carryforwards that may be used to offset taxable income when a corporation has undergone significant changes in its stock ownership. The $7,573,280 estimate of net operating loss carry-forward is calculated after we consider the effect of Section 382.


Deferred tax assets consist of the tax effect of net operating loss carry-forwards. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets because of the uncertainty regarding its realizability. Deferred tax assets consist of the following:


      December 31, 2016     December 31, 2015  
  Net operating loss carry-forwards   $ 2,574,915     $ 1,434,996  
  Valuation allowance     (2,574,915 )     (1,434,996 )
      $ -0-     $ -0-  


The Company’s tax expense does not reflect the statutory rate since the Company’s deferred tax asset is fully offset by a valuation allowance. The statute of limitations is open for the tax years ending December 31, 2014 and thereafter.
