NetChoice Applauds the USTR Action Against French Digital Services Tax

Today NetChoice applauded the US Trade Representative’s threatened imposition of tariffs of up to $2.4 billion on French goods in response to France’s taxation of the digital services performed by American businesses.
“The administration saw France’s taxes for the trade barriers they are and the US responded in kind,” said Steve DelBianco, President of NetChoice.  “The administration took important steps to stand against foreign trade barriers and protect America’s technological innovations.”
“France shouldn’t be surprised by this response to its illegal tax on American businesses,”
continued DelBianco.
“France’s digital taxes stank and the administration’s response was right on the nose,”
said DelBianco.
