Discriminatory digital services taxes act as a trade barrier for innovative American companies and small businesses often face the biggest burden from them. The French DST is one of a growing number of concerning unilateral tax regimes around the world, and we welcome the announcement from USTR today. The OECD is currently working towards a long-term solution for global digital taxation, and we encourage all countries that are contemplating passing a go-it-alone tax to focus efforts on the global solution.”
