      • $14.4 million of severance, retention, transaction and integration-related costs in connection with the Angie's List transaction

    • $6.4 million lower expense to $18.8 million in connection with the Angie's List transaction which includes:

Income Taxes

The Q4 2018 income tax benefit of $6.9 million, despite pre-tax income, was due primarily to the excess tax benefits generated by the exercise and vesting of stock-based awards.

In Q4 2017, the Company recorded an income tax provision of $22.0 million, despite a pre-tax loss. The provision was due primarily to the reduction of $33.0 million in the Company's net deferred tax assets because of the lower tax rate enacted by the US Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
