Google Tax in France?


The so called Zelnick Report, financed by the French government recommends that big advertising companies like Google and Yahoo be taxed. The tax would kick in anytime an ad is clicked in France regardless of where the company is based. This concept is likely to create  all kinds of legal and technical issues. With the expected revenue of up to $ 28 million France wants to help the struggling music and publishing sector. The Report blames Google for the troubles, arguing the search engine profits from works produced by content providers and doesn’t give anything back.
