Wyden Statement on French Digital Services Tax

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement in reaction to comments from Presidents Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron on the French digital services tax:    


“The Trump administration should reject any deal that allows France and other countries to move ahead with discriminatory taxes on U.S. technology companies, in exchange for vague promises down the line. If Donald Trump gives France a pass now, then it will be open season for foreign governments to go after major American employers.”
