WASHINGTON – Today ITI, the global voice of the tech sector, in a statement from its Vice President of Policy and Market Access Jennifer McCloskey, criticized the decision by the French government to enact a digital services tax, effective January 1, 2019:

“France’s unilateral efforts to impose a digital tax are misguided. This ill-conceived proposal, based on a plan offered by the European Commission that failed to achieve sufficient support, is the wrong approach. We urge the French government to allow the multilateral process through the OECD to play out instead of moving forward with a policy that will only create fragmentation and confusion and thereby undermine the global tax system.”
