U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin: All countries should end digital services tax plans to pave way for OECD-led global deal

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has urged all countries to suspend plans for digital services taxes that Washington believes unfairly target U.S. tech companies, to allow the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to reach an agreement on international taxation.

Reuters:

In a letter to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) dated Dec. 3, Mnuchin underscored U.S. concerns about digital services initiatives launched by France and other countries that target revenues, not profits.

    1. Yeah!!!! Who needs those damned roads, fire department, public education, prisons and jails, army, navy, Air Force, law enforcement, community colleges, railroads, air traffic controllers, landfills, public parks, bridges, vaccines, federal student loans, public beaches, radio bandwidth allotment, or post office? Damned socialist crap. Only through complete chaotic Anarchy can society be cleansed down to a bloody pulp.

      In other words, let the assholes with the biggest guns win!

      tl;dr: You’re an idiot.

      1. You forgot clean air, unpolluted water, food standards, medicine safety, food stamps, the future environment, air safety, disease control….in fact, all that is necessary for a life.

        Yeah, let’s just line up at the cliff top so the fascists can have the pleasure of pushing the herd into oblivion.
        It’s about time trondude left his basement.

          WOW, you have all those things in the USA? Must be the American Dream+, can’t wait to join you.

    2. No, because they profit shift. An OECD based outcome applies consistency and fairness to ALL concerned. And in a less adjectival way I agree with Sum Jung Gai’s comments.
