TEI Comments on European Commission Digital Economy Survey

On January 2, 2018, TEI submitted responses to the European Commission’s survey regarding “fair taxation of the digital economy.” TEI’s comments disagreed with the Commission’s proposed alternative methods for taxing digital commerce, nothing that such taxes would inherently apply to more than the so-called “digital economy,” increase administrative and compliance burdens, and represent barriers to entry to smaller firms, among other things.  TEI’s comments were prepared under the aegis of the Institute’s European Direct Tax Committee, whose chair is Giles Parsons.  Ben Shreck, TEI tax counsel, coordinated the preparation of TEI’s comments.
