As of December 31, 2013, the net deferred tax asset of $25,683, which is recorded as a net non-current deferred tax asset of $25,831 specific to Silvercrest, consists primarily of assets related to temporary differences between the financial statement and tax bases of intangibles related to its acquisition of partnership units of SLP, a net non-current deferred tax liability of $34 specific to SLP which consists primarily of liabilities related to differences between the financial statement and tax bases of intangible assets, and a non-current deferred tax liability of $114 related to the corporate activity of SFS which is primarily related to temporary differences between the financial statement and tax bases of intangible assets.

In the normal course of business, the Company is subject to examination by federal, state, and local tax regulators. As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s U.S. federal income tax returns for the years 2010 through 2012 are open under the normal three-year statute of limitations and therefore subject to examination.
The guidance for accounting for uncertainty in income taxes prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. The Company does not believe that it has any tax positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease within the next twelve months. Furthermore, the Company does not have any material uncertain tax positions at December 31, 2013 and 2012.
