Income Tax Income Tax
Our effective income tax rate was 24.8% for both the three and nine months ended June 30, 2019, and 28.9% and 26.1% for the comparable prior year periods, respectively.
Our results for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018, included the estimated effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the Act), which was signed on December 22, 2017, and was effective from January 1, 2018. We recorded a one-time "toll tax" on our undistributed and previously untaxed earnings in foreign locations of approximately $9.5 million and a one-time benefit from the reduction of our deferred tax liabilities of $10.6 million. We completed our analysis of these items in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.
During the nine months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, we made income tax payments of $45.9 million and $48.1 million, respectively.
