TEI Comments on the European Commission’s Digital Economy Tax Proposals

On May 15, 2018, TEI submitted a letter to the European Commission commenting on its proposals to impose a digital services tax and define the concept of a "significant digital presence" for corporate income tax purposes. TEI’s comments emphasized the need for the Commission to coordinate its "digital economy" tax proposals with broader multilateral organizations such as the OECD, and to provide greater definition and clarity to the new concepts set forth in the proposals. TEI's comments were prepared under the aegis of the Institute's European Direct Tax Committee, whose Chair is Giles Parsons. Benjamin R. Shreck, TEI Tax Counsel, coordinated the preparation of TEI's comments.
