Statement On USTR’S Section 301 Investigation Of France’s Digital Services Tax

Washington, DC – IA Director, Trade Policy Jordan Haas issued the following statement on USTR’s announcement in response to its Section 301 Investigation of France’s Digital Services Tax (DST):

“Today USTR made clear that go-it-alone discriminatory digital services taxes are counterproductive in finding long-term international solutions. Discriminatory digital services taxes act as a trade barrier for innovative American companies, and U.S. small businesses often face the biggest burden as a result. The internet industry urges countries to withdraw discriminatory digital tax measures and to continue working within the OECD process because it remains the best venue for resolving global taxation in the digital age.”
