EU says US blew whistle on Apple

US Senators are being blamed for airing Apple’s dirty tax washing according to EC Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager, who has ordered Apple to pay A$19 billion in taxes to Ireland.

Vestager said her team was pointed to the inordinate tax breaks received by Apple.

“The story of the Apple investigation began in the United States because the US Senate cares as much as we do about making sure companies pay their fair share of tax,” Vestager said.

“And it was their investigation into Apple – and US transparency rules – that tipped us off that the company might have received State aid.”
