IA Commends U.S./India and U.S./Turkey DST Agreements

Washington, DC – Today, Internet Association released the following statement in response to the announcement that India and Turkey have joined Austria, Italy, France, Spain, and the United Kingdom in agreeing to align digital services taxes (DSTs) implementation with the OECD’s historic global tax deal:

“IA commends the agreement between the U.S. and India, as well as the parallel accord between the U.S. and Turkey, to eventually eliminate discriminatory DSTs in accordance with the recent OECD agreement on global taxation. While timely removal of discriminatory DSTs would provide greater certainty and stability for the digital economy, we thank the Biden administration for its diligence and encourage vigilance over any DSTs that could undermine the transition to a multilateral taxation system that is pragmatic, fair, and provides clarity for internet companies within the U.S. and wordwide.”
