The French tax administration had argued that Google was required to pay taxes in France for 2005-2010 because the American company and its Irish subsidiary sold a service for inserting online ads to clients in France through its Google search engine.During a hearing in the tax case last month, an independent magistrate proposed that the most fitting solution for the dispute was wiping out, but pointed to the "shortcomings of the current legal basis."Wednesday's ruling comes amid mounting criticism that the tech firms and other major U.S. companies have scrimped on their tax bills through a variety of accounting maneuvers that have rankled governments around the world.

- French court annuls Google’s $1.27 billion back tax bill
By Philippe Sotto - Wednesday Jul 12, 2017
PARIS — A French court annulled a $1.27 billion tax adjustment imposed on Google by France’s tax authorities, saying Wednesday that the way the Mountain View firm operates in France allows it to be exempt from most taxes.The French tax administration had argued that Google was required to pay taxes in France for 2005-10 because the company and its Irish subsidiary sold a service for inserting online ads to clients in France through its search engine.The court added that Google France doesn’t have the human resources or the technical means to allow it to carry out the contentious advertising services on its own.In their ruling, the judges noted that the ads ordered by French clients could not be put online by the employees of Google France themselves because any ad orders ultimately needed approval from Google Ireland Limited.Wednesday’s ruling comes amid mounting criticism that the tech firms and other major U.S. companies have scrimped on their tax bills through a variety of accounting maneuvers that have rankled governments around the world.
