Google avoids paying $1.64 BILLION in back taxes after winning French court case

Google avoids paying $1.64b in back taxes after winning French court case:

Google will not have to pay 1.1 billion euros ($1.64 billion) in back taxes after winning a court case in Paris.

France’s tax authorities unsuccessfully argued that Google should have paid that amount of tax between 2005-2010.

The US tech giant sold online advertising which was displayed in France but booked through its subsidiary in low-tax Ireland.

The court ruled that the way in which Google operates in France allows it to be exempt from most taxes.
