Amazon wins EU court fight over $300 million tax ruling

BRUSSELS (AP) — A European Union court has overturned a ruling by the European Commission that a tax deal between Luxembourg’s government and Amazon amounted to illegal state support. The European Commission ordered the U.S. online retailer in 2017 to pay around 250 million euros ($300 million) in back taxes to Luxembourg. But judges at the  EU’s General Court said Wednesday that the European Commission didn’t prove “to the requisite legal standard that there was an undue reduction of the tax burden of a European subsidiary of the Amazon group.”
