WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Trade Representative’s office said Thursday that it found that taxes on digital services imposed by Austria, Spain and the United Kingdom discriminate against U.S. companies and are inconsistent with international tax principles, but not will take no immediate action. Publishing the results of a “Section 301” investigation into countries’ digital taxes, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the trade agency will continue to evaluate all available options. “The best outcome would be for countries to come together to find a solution,” Lighthizer said in a statement.
