U.S. Trade Chief Readies Tariffs Against Six Countries Over Digital Taxes
The taxes target in-country revenues of digital services platforms
U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai on Friday said she was maintaining the threat of U.S. tariffs on goods from Austria, Britain, India, Italy, Spain and Turkey in retaliation for their digital services taxes.
In a statement, Tai announced that her office would proceed with steps to impose potential tariffs, including filing public notices and collecting public comments as part of investigations launched originally by the Trump administration into the taxes aimed largely at American internet companies and e-commerce platforms.
The taxes target in-country revenues of digital services platforms, such as Amazon.com, Facebook and Google.
