Austria to introduce digital tax after failure of EU-wide plan
today Mar 15, 2019
Austria will press ahead with a planned tax on Internet giants after plans for an EU-wide levy fell through this week, Finance Minister Hartwig Loeger said on Friday.
It said at the time that it would hold off on implementing that plan until a European Union finance ministers' meeting this week in case a deal was reached on an EU-wide digital tax, but ministers abandoned the idea when they met on Monday.
