“Francois Hollande would not accept `Tax Optimisation Strategies’ for Multinational Internet Giants like Google”

#AceWorldNews says President Francois Hollande said Thursday that France would not continue to accept the tax optimisation strategies used by multinational Internet giants like Google.

“This is not acceptable,” he told journalists, adding that he would discuss making a “tax harmonisation effort” with US President Barack Obama when the two meet in Washington next week.
His comments follow reports that France is seeking one billion euros ($1.36 billion) in tax from Google.
