Kinross is subject to tax in various jurisdictions including Canada, the United States, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, the
Russian Federation, Mauritania, and Ghana.
For continuing operations, in 2012 the Company recorded a tax provision of $261.5 million on a loss before
taxes of $2,292.1 million, compared with a tax provision of $496.8 million on a loss before taxes of $1,536.0
million in 2011. Kinross' combined federal and provincial statutory tax rate was 26.5% for 2012.
Excluding the impact of a remeasurement of the deferred tax liability for 2012, in the amount of $116.5
million, as a result of the increase in the Ghanaian corporate income tax rate from 25% to 35% and the
Chilean corporate income tax rate from 17% to 20%, and the impairment charges for 2012 and 2011, the
Company’s effective tax rate was 37.8% compared with 35.6% for 2011. Excluding the impact of these items,
the increase in the Company’s effective tax rate compared with 201 1 was largely due to differences in the
level of income in the Com pany’s operating jurisdictions from one year to the next .
There are a number of factors that can significantly impact the Company's effective tax rate including the
geographic distribution of income, varying rates in different jurisdictions, the non-recognition of tax assets,
mining allowance, foreign currency exchange rate movements, and changes in tax laws and the impact of
specific transactions and assessments.
Due to the number of factors that can potentially impact the effective tax rate and the sensitivity of the tax
provision to these factors, as discussed above, it is expected that the Company's effective tax rate will
fluctuate in future periods. MDA32 KINROSS GOLD 2012 ANNUAL REPORT 6. LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
