EU Will Not Investigate Google Over Tax Issues?
Looks like the EU will not be investigating Google over tax issues (maybe because it’s too busy investigating Google over antitrust issues?) “Looks like Google is getting a pass from the European Commission on possible tax issues — at least for now. The Commission’s antitrust chief, Margrethe Vestager, is currently investigating whether or not Alphabet, Google’s parent company, abuses its market dominance in search and mobile software to edge out competitors. But the Commission will not be extending its probe to address questions of back taxes, according to a report Monday by Reuters.”
